Due to a recent restructure within our Therapy Department, we currently have some exciting opportunities for experienced, innovative and enthusiastic Family Therapist/Systemic Family Therapists to join our Therapy Team within Channels & Choices Therapeutic Community.

Channels & Choices is a centre of excellence in therapeutic child care. Our community, based in East Kent, is made up of 6 therapeutic residential children’s homes, a school and a therapeutic fostering service. As a member of our community you would play a key part in transforming children’s lives and helping them reach their full potential.

Our unique and innovative ‘stepping stone’ placements have become our specialty placements for Local Authorities, and placing Social Workers. These placements are: shorter term, outcome focused pieces of work within our group living residential homes. They then move through to a therapeutic foster placement with one of our therapeutic foster carers. We create a secure base for the child within the group living homes through the development of meaningful relationships, and stabilising their behaviour.

These are exciting times as Channels & Choices continues to expand and develop its Residential and Fostering Service and we are looking for someone to join our dynamic multi-disciplined staff team who has a passion for promoting outstanding outcomes for young people in our care.

We have a strong commitment to staff development and there will be considerable opportunities for internal and external training and for sharing good practice within the community.
