How can the consultant help you?

This program provides a neutral outside consultant to support local foster parents with the care they provide to young people.

This support can include:

  • Helping caregivers with ideas to manage the young person’s behaviour in the home.
  • Providing education on complex issues that affect young people in care such as trauma, attachment, FASD and other neurodevelopmental concerns.
  • Providing a safe place for the caregiver to express frustrations and discuss challenges that they are experiencing.
  • Exploring issues with caregivers that may be affecting their ability to foster.
  • Providing individualized skill building.
  • Consulting with social workers and other community professionals to ensure planning is collaborative.

Don't be shy, we want to hear from you!
