What is Therapeutically Led Placements (TLP)?
Our Therapeutically Led Placements (TLP) service offers all the benefits of foster care and therapy in one package. Our wonderful team of TLP Foster Carers have extensive training and support to help children and young people who need it most. This is a demanding service, but it is endlessly rewarding.
Children in this type of placement have been through trauma and abuse and can display challenging behaviours. This service helps these children heal their emotional wounds with your nurturing and support. Each placement is supported by a programme tailored to meet the needs of the child, young person and the fostering family. This means our service is responsive and allows the change that’s needed, and the results are amazing.
Will I be supported?
Calon Cymru will support you every step of the way. We understand how challenging this service can be so we provide extensive support and training for our TLP team. You have access to your own Supervising Social Worker and your child will have their own Individual Worker. We also run peer support groups where you can chat to other carers that can relate to you.
On top of this extra support, we also offer an enhanced fostering allowance and increased respite.
Could I be a TLP Carer?
If you are up for the challenge of joining our specialist team of Foster Carers then you are already half-way there. We think that some skills are very handy in dealing with this type of placement. Having a good sense of humour is important as well as being adaptable, emotionally robust and be able to draw on the practical skills you have gained throughout your life.
Our Therapeutically Led Placements can achieve incredible results for children, and a long lasting, positive impact on you.
