Team Parenting™ in South Australia

Across the four Key Assets operations in Australia and, in a global context, across four continents worldwide, our approach to foster care called Team Parenting™ is proven in delivering positive outcomes for children and young people in out of home care.

As a holistic approach to fostering that draws together a range of professionals to support a foster care placement in meeting the needs of the foster carer and the child or young person; this approach is highly effective in positively impacting the effects of trauma and attachment issues and the provision of quality care in a family setting.

In this light, the Team Parenting™ approach is based on the principle of ‘making a positive and lasting difference’.

Team Parenting™ and the foster carer

Central to the Team Parenting™ approach is the foster carer who acts as the ‘agent of change’, with the extended responsibility to deliver the therapeutic foster care directly to the child or young person.

Our support services based on the Team Parenting™ approach are not intended to replace the responsibilities of the foster carer but rather to extend and enhance those responsibilities.

A network of support professionals

The success of the Team Parenting™ approach around the world has proved that any specialist intervention from one of the following professional support services has the potential to make all the difference to a foster care placement:

  • Supervising Social Workers undertake frequent visits and regular telephone contact with you as your closest support professional.
  • Children and Young People Support Services (CYPSS) workers are experienced youth workers who provide for every child placed with a Key Assets Fostering foster carer. Dedicated support is vital to the success of the service we provide.
  • Education Liaison Officers act as a liaison between children and young people and their schools.
  • Therapists provide therapeutic support to children and young people by working closely with the foster carer as well as the wider support network around a placement. Therapy can be delivered individually or in groups.
