Permanent Care and Adoptive Families (PCAF)

The ACT Group and PCAF have worked together since 2009 supporting foster carers and workers by addressing their training and support needs.

We provide support to the child, carer and system for as long as it takes to stabilise the placements. Support plans are developed with the child’s case manager, and often include:

  • a comprehensive assessment, including cognitive assessment if required, and development of a Therapeutic Change Plan
  • therapy for the child
  • secondary consultation to the carer and child’s teachers
  • skill development for those significant contributors to the child’s life, such as teachers.

During our partnership with PCAF we have prevented 91.5% of placements from terminating, with cost savings to the community of more than $5 million.

“The work ACT Group undertakes with our children and families is invaluable. Their collaborative and professional approach has prevented placement breakdown and distress for the majority of permanent care children referred to them.”

St Albans Primary School

We have been working with St Albans Primary School for nearly five years; helping to develop their staff’s capacity to understand and manage challenging student behaviours.

We provide a combination of:

  • our learning and support programs
  • two embedded ACT Group clinicians
  • and a variety of other support services.

This has resulted in improvements in learning outcomes each year since the program began.

“Our partnership with ACT Group has enabled a calm and inclusive learning environment. Students transition between activities throughout the day in an orderly manner. Staff are able to use restorative practices to work through issues both in the classroom and playground. “
