What is therapeutic fostering?

evolve is a leading provider of therapeutic fostering.

This is a specialist type of foster care that supports children and young people who may have dealt with trauma, abuse or any other kind of severe disruption prior to being placed in foster care.

Sadly, many children who are in need of care require additional support to address their needs such as anger, frustration, emotional withdrawal, lack of interest or a constant demand for attention.

In addition to all of the usual benefits of fostering, therapeutic fostering incorporates:

  • Additional therapeutic interventions for children and young people who have had an especially difficult start in life.
  • Enhanced and focused training
  • Access to specialist support such as play therapy for children and young persons
  • Access to a clinical team and support
  • Increased foster carer payment up to £950 per week
  • Increased home visits from your social workers and skills worker
  • Access to a peer mentor and support groups
The aim of therapeutic fostering is to create a safe and nurturing enivronment in which our children and young . people can begin to recover from their experiences.

By fostering you’ll be playing a pivotal role in shaping a child’s future. The relationships children have with their foster parents is imperative to their long-term development

We, at evolve, are a fostering service with over 30 years’ experience in changing lives. We know how important it is to feel valued and supported on your fostering journey, so we will be there for you every step of the way. We provide training and expertise across Kent, the South East and London.
Fostering Placement Types

“Therapeutic fostering isn’t about becoming a therapist, it is a way of therapeutically parenting a child or young person who missed out on healthy emotional development and milestones in their early years.”
