Who can become a Live-in carer?

Marist180 is seeking live-in Foster carers to care for young people aged 12-15 years in one of our homes located in Toongabbie.

Carers can be part of a couple, studying, retired or partially working, and of any cultural or religious background. They must be Australian citizens or permanent residents and willing to undertake training, assessments and probity checks to become authorised Foster Carers.

Live-in carers are on the frontline of keeping kids off the street. To be successful in this role you will have the resilience, maturity, emotional intelligence and the mentoring skills to provide a safe, stable and supportive home environment for young people. You will work with Marist180 staff, the children and their legal guardians together in supporting a successful restoration process for the child to transition back to the family home.

Live-in carers receive:

  • generous tax-free carer reimbursements
  • free accommodation in a Marist180 home, with all utilities paid for
  • full use of a serviced vehicle
  • specialised training, including how to support young people who have experienced trauma
  • intensive support from experienced staff including therapeutic specialists, case workers and youth workers
