Finding Inspiration in Every Turn

As Mission Director of Tasmanian Baptists, I know I speak for our whole movement when I commend the ministry of Fostering Hope. 


The work of Fostering Hope in recruiting and supporting those involved in the care –the children and the carers, the birth parents and those working in child safety services, is life changing. As a union of churches across the State we are delighted to be in partnership with Mary Blake and her team as they seek to help church communities understand the needs of children in care, and their encouragement to churches to help meet the need for more foster and kinship carers. 


Without hesitation we support Fostering Hope and the work they do on behalf of children and their carers across our State.

Finding Inspiration in Every Turn

I have been working alongside Mary and Fostering Hope since I started this role in November 2019. The Fostering Hope team is a wealth of knowledge and have a clear passion for supporting Tasmanian Carers and Foster Children. I have received positive feedback from carers who find the addition supports and connections with other Fostering Hope participants very helpful. Mary and the team are such supportive advocates for positive changes in the Out Of Home Care (OOHC) space in Tasmania.
