Heather Baird

Change Agent

Heather is a Sale local who has dedicated her life to helping children in the foster care system. 

In 2014, Heather founded A Better Life for Foster Kids, a not-for-profit organisation providing Crisis Cases and other material relief to children entering emergency care. 

Crisis Cases are designed to meet a gap in the system for the benefit of children who continue to arrive with nothing in their foster and kinship placements. 

She has mobilised the Gippsland and wider Victorian community to contribute clothes, linen and furniture for children in the foster care system.
