Therapeutic Care for a child or young person in statutory care is a planned approach to the complex impacts of abuse, neglect, separation from families and significant others. This response is achieved through the provision of an evidence based model of care that reflects an environment that provides a positive, safe and healing experience in response to trauma, attachment and developmental needs in partnership.
Therapeutic Care for a child or young person in statutory care is a planned, intensive approach to the complex impacts of abuse, neglect, separation from families and significant others. This response is achieved through the provision of a care environment that is evidence driven and provides a positive, safe and healing experience, in partnership with the family, significant others, utilising the expertise and experience of other services to address the complexities of trauma, attachment and developmental needs.
The Therapeutic Care Project seeks to develop guiding principles and review current service models for providing therapeutic OOHC services.

To everyone at Allambi,Thank you so much for everything and for putting up with all my tantrums and all those long nights at hospital.What you guys have done for me I won’t forget – I love all of you’sso much. I honestly don’t think I’d be alive if I didn’t come here.What all of you do is awesome and I don’t know if you all realize but you do save kids everyday and give them that little bit of hope and love they need.And what makes you all so awesome is that it is pretty much unconditional care. You don’t care where kids come from, or where they are now your still there and are always trying to make each day better than the last.
And that’s something only too few people can do.
Keep smiling – always – forever
