Enhanced Placements

FFI recognise that some children and young people in foster care require additional inputs to support their placement and to assist them through a difficult period. FFI can offer an enhanced placement to meet those needs in a flexible and responsive manner.

In addition to the supports offered with our standard placements, our enhanced placement packages can include:

  • Enhanced carer allowance subject to agreement with Tusla
  • Increased Link Social Work support visits and contact
  • Additional educational support to include tuition and in-home education options if necessary
  • Enhanced therapeutic support for the placement
  • Up to 2 hours of child care support per week which can be utilised to directly support the child or young person with identified areas of need
  • Team Parenting® meetings with all professional stakeholders as required
  • Additional number of respite nights if required to support the stability of the placement
