Bear for Care

Bear for Care is a collaboration between Mark and Caroline from Mix FM Breakfast; Todd and Sami from Mix FM Drive; the Sunshine Coast Daily; and IFYS Foster Care Sunshine Coast and is designed to raise awareness of the plight of children who are removed from their families due to abuse or neglect living on the Sunshine Coast.

When children are deemed at risk of abuse or neglect and are removed from the family home, they are placed in out-of-home care, either with foster parents, relatives or in residential facilities.

Todd & Sami will be broadcasting live on Saturday 6th April from Wirreanda News – King Street Buderim from 9am-12pm.

Collect ALL 4 of the bears, bring them into the 92.7 MIX FM reception and show us and receive an Entry Ticket to the FREE Todd and Sami Bear Hunt @ Wildlife HQ on Saturday April 27th from 2pm-4pm.

There will be HEAPS of prizes to be found at the bear hunt, these animal encounters are just some that will be up for grabs to be found! 2 x meerkat, 2 x ruffed lemur, 2 x emperor tamarin, 2 x koala. 1 x binturong, 1 x sun bear.

On the Sunshine Coast in 2017 there was 1323 children living away from home on protective orders and only 543 foster carers and 258 kin carers (extended family members) for the same region.

There is a desperate need for more carers on the coast to assist these children and young people.

IFYS Foster Care provides:
• Recruitment and Training of new and current carers
• Education for carers to understand the child protection act and legal responsibilities
• Support for carers through advocacy; de-briefing and parenting strategies
• Child Focused supports
• 24 hour on call service
• Placement matching for the region
• Carer social activities

IFYS Foster Care has a team of 17 Foster Care Coordinators in specialised areas.
