Our belief is that children should always be with family when it is safe for them.
Children in care are reunited with their birth family when required changes have been made and the environment is considered safe. Our care team work alongside birth families to support them to make necessary changes to have their children permanently restored to their care.
A special type of carer is required in these situations. Someone able to therapeutically support the child and the birth family to work towards reunification. It requires a very special form of empathy from the carer towards the birth parents.
Where the permanent return of a child to the birth family is not possible, we explore other family-finding possibilities and consult widely around the next-best permanency pathway.
Do you have that special form of empathy?
