Closes 31 Oct 2020

Opened 31 Oct 2019


Function 1: Step Down. Provide therapeutic placements with an intensive support package for carers who will foster children currently living in residential children’s homes who wish to live within a fostering family.

Function 2: Break the Cycle of placement disruption. Provide a therapeutic intensive support package to existing experienced carers who are willing to provide a new placement for a child with complex needs who has had multiple placement break-downs and is likely to be placed in an out of county placement, such as a residential children’s home or an Independent Fostering Agency placement.  These placements will be described as “therapeutic placements”.

Function 3: Therapeutic Intervention Placement Support (TIPS). TFT will provide a Therapeutic Intensive Support Package (ISP) to existing placements where the placement is at risk of imminent breakdown.
