Short and Long Term Non-Therapeutic Fostering (Solo – Standard)
We are able to offer short term placements to children and young people who might be between families, such as awaiting the assessment of a suitable family member.
Long Term Assessment and Therapeutic Placement (Solo)
We offer placements with our foster carers who are willing to provide a longer therapeutic care package to meet the ongoing complex and trauma related needs of children and young people. This includes a full assessment package, then an ongoing treatment plan.
Sibling Therapeutic Placements
Part of the therapeutic work with children could have a focus on building their relationships within a sibling group. Some of our carers will have the skill, experience and accommodation available to provide care for a sibling group, enabling them to stay together and work through any developmental trauma as a family unit.
Alternative to Residential Care or Step Down from Residential Care (Solo)
Similar to our short term placements, we can provide shorter term, bridging placements that can either serve as a step down from residential care or as
a therapeutic alternative to residential care. These placements are outcome focussed, with the goal of returning children and young people into a more suitable family home environment, whether that be permanence through fostering or birth family.
Short Term Therapeutic or Assessment Placement (Solo)
Our short term therapeutic placements offer an array of services to meet the child’s presenting needs. The placement can be for up to two years and can provide an intensive period of support for a child or young person who requires a complete assessment for their presenting needs.
These placements will offer an intensive package of therapeutic support for carers and the child or young person in response to the assessed level of need.
Out of Area Therapeutic Placements
We are able to offer services to children and young people who for safety reasons might need a family placement outside of their own Local Authority.
On a case by case basis, there is a provision for young people aged 18 and older that have been previously looked after by our foster carers to remain within their current foster home.
