Inaugural “Kids in Care” Cup

The Illawarra Titans Aboriginal Rugby League Football Club as many other Aboriginal Community based sporting clubs hope we represent more than just players in our local competition or a team at the NSW Koori Knockout. It’s events like these and those you host in your own communities that share our community’s messages.

The ‘Kids in Care” Cup aims to broaden the knowledge in community of the need for more Carers for our Kids in Statutory Care.

The event will be held on the 15th September 2013 which is the last Sunday of Foster Carers Week and will link in with the launch of the Fostering NSW Campaign in which dedicated resources and media strategies will be targeted at the recruitment of Aboriginal Carers.

Our Partners believe in the need to support the sector and believe in the concept. That’s why they have pledged support to the “Kids in Care“ Cup and will be present on the day sharing their resources to enable our community to meet this need. They will support you with information on issues such as how to become a Carer, what networks exist, where is your local Aboriginal agency and information on Legislation and reforms and types of Foster care. You will hear from each of them leading up to the event through our social media page and through print media, calling on community to look at their homes to see if they would consider becoming a respite, crisis, short or even long term carer.
