What is Care+ 

Care+ is a therapeutic service that directly supports children and young people who have experienced early neglect and trauma.

The Care+ service provides specific care to young people whilst giving you the support package you need, structured to meet the individual needs of young children.

This service focuses on developing regulation and resilience for children and young people and is attachment-based and trauma-informed. Our foster carers will create a therapeutic environment with a professional team. This is based on nurturing and non-shaming care resulting in placements which are not only stable but thriving.
