All assessors use a range of theoretical frameworks which includes (but not limited to); trauma informed care, attachment theory, systemic theory and strengths based practice.

All practitioners engaging directly with clients have the necessary probity checks including Blue Cards, Working With Children Checks and National Police check in addition to written references, available to customers if required. All practitioners have signed strict confidentiality contracts, ensuring privacy and confidentiality for all work completed. Data is stored on password-protected computers, within password-protected programs.
We operate within a quality assurance framework to ensure professional reports and recommendations are provided. Assessors are offered regular debriefing and supervision by a senior practitioner, with 15 years’ experience or more, ensuring higher quality assessments, conducted with the utmost integrity and professionalism.

Assessors are culturally sensitive and culturally responsive. Wherever possible, working in partnership with local cultural Elders and culturally appropriate practitioners, including our own Cultural Liaison Officer, who can help guide our assessments are the preferred way of engaging with our clients.

Just a quick note in appreciation…It’s been an absolute pleasure dealing with your assessor through the Foster Assessment process (despite her recent mobility challenges). During our engagement (and with my references) she was thorough, professional and pleasant. Your assessor is clearly passionate about her work and getting outcomes."
