An examination of the progress of Recruitment and Retention of Foster Carers in the USA, UK and in the Republic of Ireland
In 2008, when she was Berry Street’s Director in the Hume Region, Anita Pell was awarded The Brockhoff Foundation Churchill Fellowship. Anita was very concerned about the crisis in Australian Foster Care: foster carers were leaving the care system in alarming numbers at the same time as there was a decline in the number of people applying to become foster carers. She visited international agencies to obtain information about strategies to avert the crisis. The report on Anita’s Churchill Fellowship outlines her recommendations for a more professionalised foster care system in Australia.
