Channel Fostercare underwent major changes at the end of 2017.
It is fair to say that under the previous management the agency lost direction. However, there was a complete change in the management and leadership of the agency in November 2017. New and close associations were formed with the National Association of Therapeutic Parents (NATP) to deliver the TRUE Model (Therapeutic Re-parenting Underpinned by Empathy/Experience). This is a model of parenting which was developed by Sarah Naish (NATP) and has achieve great success.
Matt Dauncey joined the agency from Swindon Local Authority’s Fostering Team as the Fostering Manager. Matt has a lot of training , background and experience of Therapeutic Fostering and delivering the TRUE Fostering model.
New social workers with experience of delivering Therapeutic Parenting have joined the existing team who have undergone retraining to work within the TRUE Fostering model.
