At Anglicare Victoria our focus is on transforming the futures of children and young people, families and adults. Our work is based on three guiding pillars, Prevent, Protect, Empower. We offer a comprehensive network of services and seek to ensure the provision of high quality services that will bring about significant improvements in the life experience of the young people, children and families/caregivers with whom we work.
The Targeted Care Packages Program (TCP) provides an individualised model of support with funding tailored to the social and developmental needs of children, young people and their families who are subject to statutory orders by the Department of Health and Human Services, Child Protection. TCP encompasses a number of placement options including kinship care, foster care, home based care, semi-independent living and independent living. TCP’s are a creative and innovative support option aimed at transitioning children and young people out of or prevent them from entering residential care.
TCP also works closely with the Foster Care team. Anglicare Victoria provides foster care for children and young people who are temporarily unable to live at home. Anglicare Victoria is the State’s largest provider of foster care and plays a vital role in protecting children and young people by ensuring they have a safe and nurturing home while their family cannot care for them.
Our foster care program provides a stable home environment for children and young people aged between 0 and 18 years. Children enter foster care for a number of reasons and can stay with our carers for as short as one night or several years.
The program provides Complex, Intensive and General Home Based Care for children and young people who are unable to live with their own families. Most children and young people are placed in out of home care following child protection intervention.
Please Note: It is mandatory for the successful applicant to hold a current Working with Children Check and be prepared to undergo a National Criminal History Check prior to commencement.
