Welcome to Kinship Carers Victoria’s podcast series for carers
In this podcast Director of Kinship Carers Victoria (KCV) Anne McLeish discusses how education is a key factor in ensuring positive outcomes for children as they mature into adults. KCV believes children have the right to a high-quality education that ensures all students experience success at school.
This has lead KCV to call for reinforcement of the capacity of the state’s Lookout Education Support Centres in their efforts to support children and young people in out-of-home care.
Murray Geddes, Principal of the Lookout Centre for the South Eastern Victoria Region, also explains the role the centres play and how kinship carers and the children in their care can benefit.
Carers wishing to contact one of the state’s four Lookout Centres can do so through the principals listed below.
