Foster care is about providing a safe and supportive home to children who are unable to live with their birth parents. It is often used to provide temporary care while parents get help sorting out problems, or to help children or young people through a difficult period in their lives.

As the state’s largest provider of out-of-home care services for disadvantaged Victorians, Anglicare Victoria ensures that children and young people can access safe environments. We provide a home to more than 400 Victorian kids each night, and can only achieve this with the support of dedicated staff and passionate volunteer carers.

Children in our care range in age from young babies right through to adolescents and they need your support.

Anglicare Victoria is currently raising funds for foster children through an exciting challenge based fundraiser, Altitude Shift.

They’re asking you to Face Your Fears and challenge yourself to abseil 27 floors in the Melbourne CBD on Friday 29 or Saturday 30 March to support kids in foster care.

 

27 Floors. 113 Metres. Full Training and Support. Only 200 Spots. Hurry!

Why? To support kids in foster care. Because these kids face fear each and every day - the fear of being in a new home, fear of being apart from family, fear for the future. Face your fears in Altitude Shift to support these kids to show them they are not forgotten.

You’re support of Altitude Shift (either as an abseiler or a supporter) makes a difference to the lives of foster children, as all funds raised will support Anglicare Victoria in the ongoing provision of programs for these vulnerable children. This means it will go to finding them a place, supporting a foster carer, or to one of their extensive academic and emotional development programs, which are designed to help children living in care catch up with their peers.
