Nominate a foster and kinship legend!

Nominate a foster and kinship legend!

Nominations are now open for the 2020 Foster and Kinship Carer Awards, and Territorians are encouraged to nominate an everyday legend in their community who is going above and beyond to make a difference to a child’s life.

It takes a special person to provide care and support to a child or children in need, and the Foster and Kinship Carer Awards celebrate this remarkable achievement.

Foster and Kinship Carers make a real difference to children’s lives, and these awards showcase the everyday heroes who live amongst us providing care to vulnerable children in the Northern Territory.

The 2020 award categories are:

  • Outstanding Contribution by a Foster Carer
  • Outstanding Contribution by a Kinship Carer
  • Outstanding Contribution by a Territory Families staff member
  • Outstanding Contribution by a Sibling
  • Young Person Achievement Award.

An awards ceremony will take place in Darwin in September 2020, with additional events planned for the regional cities and towns in the Northern Territory in line with COVID-19 safety guidelines. Invitations will be issued to nominees in early September.

Nominate a foster and kinship legend by visiting the Territory Families website.
