CaringLife – Connecting the Lives of Children in Care

CaringLife is an award-winning online platform and app that gives children and young people in out-of-home or alternative care a way to see all the photos, videos and important memories from their time in care.

It connects children and teens with their carers, and lets both the children/young people and carers upload the content, write captions and see all the memories from their time together.

At the moment, these memories are often given to the children on a USB or in a scrapbook, which can be damaged or lost.

CaringLife is not a social media network - it's designed to be a completely private way for young people be able to see all their memories.

What happens if the child moves?

If the young person moves to a new care family or residential home, the new carers can be connected with the child so that they can continue to upload all the new memories. The content will be able to be accessed forever - even when the young person leaves care or turns 18.

Who is it designed For?

CaringLife is designed for children and young people in out-of-home care - foster, kinship or residential care.

What can be uploaded?

If it's something a young person would like to remember, it can be uploaded. It might be photos and video from their birthday party, funny photos they take at home, a holiday, school photos, a day at the park, etc. It can also be scans of sporting awards, certificates of participation, birthday cards, artwork, or school reports.

“A fragmented, damaged, discontinuous personal narrative puts an individual child at risk.  CaringLife provides a terrific way for children to be able to access their life moments in an easy and continuous way, and I support the use of CaringLife for children in out-of-home care.”
