Residential Care services are funded through 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 OOHC framework underpins the 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 planned interventions across the domains of a child’s life are co-ordinated by the child’s key worker who draws on the multi-disciplinary resources available within CatholicCare and those of other critical agencies, community and cultural groups and service providers.
Regular reviews by all 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 the young person.
Residents are able to move through different living options as their circumstances change.
