Why Place With Us

Therapeutic support

‘The mind-set is refreshing; the value base is all about the children’

(Ofsted report 2016)


  • At Lighthouse we understand the importance of ensuring every child’s mental wellbeing as a top priority. Our non-stigmatising, inclusive therapeutic approach ensures all children will receive an integrated model of care. 
  • All children have robust and rigorous risk assessments and safe care plans.
  • In addition, children are monitored regularly to ensure that they are making progress and individual outcome trackers for each child when placed.
  • Foster Carers are a key part of the therapeutic approach and they are given professional training to ensure that they can support children and young people in a therapeutic way.
We have a child and adolescent psychodynamic psychotherapist working with us here at Lighthouse Fostering to support our carers, children, young people and staff
