Foster care provider to review recruitment

The foster care provider at the centre of a storm over its recruitment techniques says an online advertisement was not approved and did not meet its social media policy or guidelines.

Tasmania's Human Services Minister Jacqui Petrusma is confident the use of a Facebook 'buy and sell' page to attract potential foster carers is acceptable, and garnered more than 50 responses.

A statement from Life Without Barriers says the descriptions provided in the post were 'indicative of children that often require foster care and did not relate to any child(ren) that actually require care'.

The organisation is now reviewing its staff training procedures.
