What was the mission?
With more than 14,000 children and young people under care and protection orders in Victoria Australia, things have never looked bleaker. Add in a global pandemic and the strain caused to existing carers meant that many carers had to take a break from fostering.
As a result, children that require fostering have to go much further afield for their care, leaving their local area, friends and community.
Upper Murray Family Care is an organisation that primarily aims to strengthen, nurture and care for children and families throughout North East Victoria and Upper Murray in Australia.
They are an independent, non-government, community-managed agency, offering a range of quality services that are responsive to the varying needs of the communities.
