Fostering Support

25 years of delivering high quality fostering services across Lancashire

Call: 0800 652 6955

The Therapeutic Intervention Service is an overarching support service that provides an array of support to our Adopters, Foster Carers and young people.

The team consists of one team leader, and three Social Worker Assistant who are all highly experienced and trained to meet the varying support needs of our families.

We understand that life brings about challenges and difficulties for all families and it’s important that our families don’t have to face these times in isolation. We work in partnership to look at how we can work through the more challenging and difficult times together, working closely with external agencies to help guide and advise Adopters and Foster Carers on other areas of support that would be beneficial to them and their young people.

Our Support

We provide a tailored support service as we recognise that each family and each person within that family are unique.  We are a therapeutic service and we ensure that our support is enriched with the key concepts of Dan Hughes P.A.C.E, Playfulness, Acceptance, Curiosity, and Empathy.

Our families are important to us and it is vital that we, as a service, provide ongoing support to those within the Caritas Care family.
