LGIAsuper Community Hub welcomes the Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services to Cowboys game day this Saturday, with information and giveaways for members and fans on the important work of our foster carers.

With close to 1,000 children in North Queensland currently unable to live with their own family, the Queensland Government are looking for more people with extraordinary hearts to support these children by becoming foster carers.

“We hope to positively promote foster and kinship caring in Queensland, highlighting the need for more foster carers and provide information around services, support and what foster caring entails,” Carolyn Phillips, senior service support officer for the Mt Isa-Townsville Kinship and Foster Care Team, said.

“We are also aiming to inform Cowboys fans about the free Family and Child Connect Service that is available should families need assistance with parenting challenges.”

LGIAsuper is proud to be able to support the Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services, by helping promote the services available to vulnerable Queenslanders.

Teaming up with the Cowboys gives LGIAsuper the opportunity to drive positive change through education and social initiatives, so be sure to visit the Community Hub and learn more about the important work this organisation is doing in your community.
