Residential Care services are funded by Family & Community Services and provide care for children and young people between 12 and 18 years of age. CatholicCare Diocese of Broken Bay have several residential houses across Northern Sydney and the Central Coast.
A trauma informed, therapeutic framework underpins individualised programs our children and young persons undertake during their time with us.
Programs are tailored to children’s therapeutic needs and developmental stages. We recognise that a child may be functioning at different cognitive, emotional, and social levels to their biological age because of trauma. Assessments are carried out with therapeutic specialists, and therapeutic interventions are co-ordinated by the child’s key worker who draws on the multi-disciplinary skills within CatholicCare, other agencies, community and cultural groups and service providers.
Regular reviews by stakeholders of the effectiveness of interventions are overseen by CatholicCare’s guided practice case management systems. The therapeutic care team assess and adjust activities on a regular basis to flexibly meet the needs of each young person.
Residents are able to move through different living options as their circumstances change.
