Care Visions Children’s Services

At Care Visions Children’s Services, we pride ourselves in making home a reality for children and young people who need a stable, loving family environment when their parents are unable to look after them. We believe that every child has right to heal and recover from trauma, abuse, and neglect and grow to achieve their full potential. Our foster families and therapeutic residential environments can help young people rediscover their childhood and achieve more than they thought possible. Our therapeutic model of care underpins our commitment to providing an individualised and flexible approach to meeting the needs of the children and young people we look after.

Care Visions Fostering

Care Visions Fostering is a not-for-profit organisation that has grown steadily to become one of the leading independent foster care providers in Scotland. We have a reputation for giving our foster carers training and support of the highest quality. We utilise various therapeutic approaches including Theraplay based practice and Therapeutic Crisis Intervention for Families (TCIF) to help our carers support children and young people with a wide range of needs. Care Visions Fostering has seen a steady increase in both the number of young people it cares for and the ability and expertise of its team of specialist fostering social workers.

Care Visions Residential

Care Visions began in 1998, at Orca House in Dumfries and Galloway, and has grown to have 30 residential houses across Scotland. Our houses are small, nurturing and homely, with the majority caring for between 1 and 4 young people, and one having space for 5. Care Visions Residential is fully accredited in the Sanctuary model, and this underpins all of our work with young people. Our innovative Why Not? programme supports young people into adulthood by creating lifelong connections for care leavers.

Care Visions Dementia

In 2016, we recruited an international team from Australia, Singapore and England. We began to measure the effectiveness of our services using parameters charting our patients’ engagement with our therapies, and monitoring improvements to their quality of life. Our at-home service has been growing apace, and since November 2016, we have been working with Chinese governments to deliver group dementia sessions within local communities. We also deliver group therapies and individualised dementia therapy programmes in local nursing homes in the UK, as well as conducting community-based activity sessions for those with dementia and their loved ones. Recently, we launched online classes on dementia care knowledge to the public on the Chinese social media platform, WeChat. We have over 750 people in our online classes every week.
