Happy 10th Birthday to Channels & Choices Fostering Department!
This week, Channels & Choices Fostering Department celebrated its 10th Birthday. In 2013 we expanded our services from residential care homes to include an independent therapeutic fostering agency with the purpose of supporting children from our residential houses to get back to family living as quickly as possible , our award winning ‘Stepping Stones” programme was then created. To our knowledge we are the only therapeutic fostering service to offer a completely integrated residential care to fostering step down program which is fully supported by our inhouse school and therapy team.
In that time, we’ve seen over 100 children placed with our amazing carers. The majority of these are long term placements and most children have successfully moved on to independence as they got older, but have forged long-term relationships with their foster carers and the wider C&C community .
We have a number of amazing Foster carers approaching long service milestones of five and ten years with us, which is a testament to Channels & Choices’ emphasis on providing a secure base for both our carers and families.
We’re proud to have seen some amazing progress with some of the young people in our care over these 10 years too: we’ve seen young people create positive outcomes for themselves and move onto college, apprenticeships and independent living and professional careers.
As an agency, we’re constantly evolving and with the help of our wonderful carers, through our ambassador programme, we’re able to now offer an industry leading allowance package alongside an excellent range of benefits including regular community events, celebrations, parties, days out and so much more. We are always looking for new and existing carers to join our multi disciplined team to work with our fantastic children and to help give them a brighter future through long term therapeutic fostering.
We’re incredibly proud of everything we’ve achieved over the last 10 years and we’re excited about what the next ten years has in store.
