Social Care Solutions acknowledges the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the First Nations people and Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia. We recognise the continuing connection to lands, waters and communities. We believe they are and always will be the Custodians of this land. We pay our respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures; and to Elders both past and present, and to Emerging Leaders for tomorrow.

What our clients say...

“The facilitator allowed participants to actively engage, question and share the whole way through. I liked the interactive activities, the presenter’s manner and her knowledge. I thought it was presented really well.”

Quality Care: Pre-service Training

“I feel as though I need to once again express how grateful we are to have worked alongside your service, it has been such a supportive and easy process. I have just finished reading this and I am very pleased with the content covered. It is very thorough and I do not feel there is anything missing. Thank you for your additional assistance and willingness to work with this family. You have been able to develop a trusting relationship quite early into the process.”

Agency on our Assessment

“[The SCS IFS program] has made me go forward in my life in a short amount of time. In the past we have had workers who didn’t care about us and haven’t shown the interest or kindness you [therapist] have. It is a totally better service where you are comfortable to come to our home and spend time with us, which is better than what we have had. The service has motivated me to take better care of myself and has been a help. The difference we have seen in such a short time has been amazing, thank you.”

Intensive Family Support Program

“We are committed to using the services of Social Care Solutions as the quality of their work to date has been second to none.  The assessment and training that we have contracted to Social Care Solutions is always of the highest quality, reflecting positively on our company while affording us the opportunity to grow and meet the demands of the sector.  Social Care Solutions is run efficiently with a focus on gaining the best outcomes not only for the contractor but also the foster carers we recruit.
