Koorie Kare (Home Based Care) program is responsible for completing regular assessment to identify the strengths within the given placements and to identify where any further supports need to be put in place to support both carers and children.

The Koorie Kare program is for all children who reside in out of Home Care on a statutory order.

Koorie Kare assists Foster Carers to manage ongoing and emerging concerns for the child.

The role of the Case Manager is to meet the child’s safety, stability and developmental needs, while ensuring the child’s right to their Culture and community is supported.

Koorie Kare advocates for the child and works with the child’s entire Care Team, including the Department of Families, Fairness and Housing, to achieve the best outcomes for child in care and the people who care for them.

Koorie Kare supports provide practical support and/or material aid to support the stability and continuation of the placement.
