Caring for someone

Who can care?

Our caregivers come from many walks of life, and have a diverse range of experience and backgrounds – just like the children and young people they care for. 

We welcome caregivers of any gender, marital status and cultural or religious identity. The most important thing is the ability to provide a safe, stable and loving home and to meet the needs of tamariki.  

It can be a big challenge, but it comes with equally big rewards.
