Fostercarer in North Queensland

Meet Superhero Shane

Shayne is a frontline volunteer with the Victorian State Emergency Service and in our eyes resoundingly qualifies as a Superhero. Shayne came into care at only six months of age and was in the child protection system for 17 years.

There is no doubt that Shayne's foster carers helped to turn around his circumstances and contributed to building the foundations for the positive life he experiences today. At IFYS we understand that choosing to become a foster carer may seem quite daunting, but, like Shayne's carers, by saying yes you will be able to assist us to raise another one of our community's Superhoeroes.
