SUSTAIN is a service working directly with Staffordshire carers and other involved professionals, and with children and young people who are looked after. We also offer a service to adoptive parents and their children We work with children and young people where there is no plan for rehabilitation to their birth families. We provide therapy and consultation to help, support and maintain placements. We provide direct therapeutic work with individual young people and family units. Our work is strongly influenced by attachment, systemic and developmental ideas and theories.
We offer consultation to professionals and networks. This can provide the opportunity to think in some detail about the needs of the young people even if we do not go on to work directly with the young people and the carers. We are able to offer exploratory sessions, which can help you to decide whether SUSTAIN can helpfully become involved with your clients.
We offer training through workshops, and we contribute to established courses.
