FtSE Member News: Action For Children calls for the expansion of Multidimensional Treatment Foster Care
Multidimensional Treatment Foster Care (MTFC) is an evidence-based programme that involves the care of young people mainly referred through the youth justice systems.
Action for Children Intensive Fostering services provide MTFC in Wessex and London. It is an alternative to custody that aims to provide the child with: close supervision and consistent limits and consequences for bad behaviour.
It also aims to minimise association with negative/ offending peer groups and works with family members to improve relationships.
Intensive Fostering is a community-based sentence but it is not an easy option.
Based on our experience of delivering MTFC, Action for Children wants to see the programme expanded and consistently seen, and used, as an alternative to custody.
