As an agency we continue to see children and young people referred to us who have very complex needs, which can't be met with the support and training offered by other placement types. To meet this need we have developed the Wraparound placement scheme offering therapeutic parenting to the children and young people who may be at risk of being placed in a residential environment, have had several placement breakdowns or are unable to live alongside other children due to their complex needs.
We marked the launch with our Wraparound foster carers (pictured) and have seen many more foster carers come forward who are interested in offering this type of foster care. All foster carers who offer Wraparound have been approved to do so and have received specialist training to give them the confidence to manage the needs of the children and young people.
Wraparound is one of many specialist placement types we offer. More information about these placement types can be found on our Placement Types page.
