Therapeutic Support for Children Looked After
321100 – Social Community Care Supplies & Services – Children
The overall purpose of the Service is to provide a team of mental health professionals with at least one clinical psychologist and clinically recognised qualifications (e.g. psychologist) and demonstrable experience of supporting CLA, who will receive referrals, assess the emotional wellbeing needs of individual CLA and develop and monitor individual tailored therapeutic programmes. The focus of the team will be working with key professionals (mainly social workers, foster carers, and residential workers) to deliver therapeutic programmes, not directly, but through these key professionals. Some direct therapeutic work with children and young people will also be required, and this will be of such a volume that staff will retain their professional registration.
