Private fostering agencies and residential units are often working with some of the most challenging children and young people and can find that accessing mainstream services difficult due to long waiting lists. Children and their Carers need immediate help in order to sustain placements as with each placement breakdown a child’s behaviour will get worse. We are able to offer consultation to foster carers and professionals as well as direct work with the children and family therapy with the child and carers.
We are also able to offer training on a wide range of mental health Issues to help increase the skills and knowledge of the carers and professionals Involved and to help plan for possible challenging behaviour/placements.
We currently work with multiple organisations that have a number of residential units nationally. We have developed a model for psychological support using assistant psychologists, psychologists and counsellors local to the units.
