In 2017 the Department of Communities, together with the Foster Care Association of WA and a number of non-government agencies, developed the inaugural WA Foster Carers Week.

The Week was created to recognise and celebrate the efforts of our dedicated and hardworking foster and family carers, and takes place from 12–18 March each year.

An invitation only Celebration Brunch event for metropolitan foster carers will close the week in Perth, while regional carers will be honoured at localised events.

All events, metropolitan and regional, will assist in raising awareness of the need for more foster carers state-wide.
