In Family-based Care, our goal is to provide a model of care that enables young people to safely and successfully settle into a stable family environment, as well as preventing children who have experienced multiple placement breakdowns from experiencing another placement failure. We will provide an enhanced multi-disciplinary support package of intervention. The support will be therapeutically led and include a range of social work, education, child and youth care and practical support as appropriate.
We recognize there will be a broad range of presenting issues so our model is designed to offer flexibility, with access to a range of evidence-based, specialist interventions that can be drawn upon depending on the young person’s assessed needs. The program will be delivered through a wraparound approach, bringing together support and interventions from our multi-disciplinary team and access to community resources, to ensure the young person and care provider are appropriately supported throughout the placement, thus increasing the likelihood of improved outcomes for the young person.
Short-term (emergency) and long-term placements will be provided.
Supports provided to the carer(s) will include:
