About PIC

The PIC model places one young person with one Professional Therapeutic Carer (PTC). This matching is based on the young person’s needs and resources and the PTC’s professional concept. The young person lives together with the PTC, but unlike foster care the PTC has the professional skill set to respond to high need behavior and young people with a trauma background. The setting offers the young person a genuine relationship in a family orientated environment. This can only be achieved in an environment free of shift workers moving in and out of the young person’s life. PIC is able to provide both the care & therapeutic environments in one setting.

Our Values

We are committed to providing what we believe is the best form of care for vulnerable young people.
Our approach is centred in the following principles:

People are amazingly complex and come with their own unique histories. Holistic and individual care needs to be based on more than a case file, we have to get to know the young person, including their social environment and families, to provide more than just an ‘intervention’ and a quick fix. Matching the young person to a Professional Therapeutic Carer that meets their needs and can help develop their personal resources is the foundation to providing individualised care.

This individualised approach continues throughout care, it is a continuous process of listening to a young person and doing our best to design the care around their development. In our experience this type of individualised care is only possible in a one-on-one environment with a Professional Therapeutic Carer and provided by a flexible organisation that has the human resource capacity and institutional experience to support the placement.
