Indigenous Foster and Kinship Care

Murri Families for Murri Kids

- Sunshine Coast

At D’Jinang Djaa we need Aboriginal carers. Around 10 times more indigenous children are likely to be taken into care than other Australians and there are simply not enough Aboriginal carers to support them.

We need you to become a carer here on the Sunshine Coast so that you can help these beautiful children stay connected to their community and culture so as to ensure their identity remains strong and alive.
