What is a Therapeutic Foster Carer?

Therapeutic Foster Carers provide care  in their  own home for children who are  unable to live with their  parents.

Therapeutic Foster Carers are  part  of Parkerville’s multi-disciplinary team approach to caring  for children – our goal is to enable children to experience long term stability in a family setting and develop lifelong associations to support them into adulthood.

How would I be supported?

Therapeutic Foster Carers are  allocated a Case Manager and have access to a range of professionals such  as Teacher, Occupational Therapist and Psychologist to support the child in all aspects of their life.

We understand that  raising children can be expensive so we provide Therapeutic Foster Carers  with a generous subsidy and additional support for out of pocket  expenses such  as school  and recreational activities.

Therapeutic Foster Carers also receive comprehensive training to support them  in their  role and access to an on call Case Manager outside business hours.
