Programme History

Over the past ten years the Department for Education (DfE), in partnership with the Department of Health and the Youth Justice Board, has supported a range of evidence based interventions for looked after children, children on the edge of care or custody and their families. These children typically have a range of complex and challenging behaviours which can result in out of home placements, placement breakdown or custody.

The interventions include Multisystemic Therapy (MST), Treatment Foster Care Oregon (TFCO), KEEP (Keeping foster and kinship carers trained and supported), RESuLT, AdOpt and TEND. These interventions are supported by the National Implementation Service, which was funded by the DfE and based at the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust. The service consists of various teams who oversee the interventions and are specifically responsible for programme set up, ensuring model fidelity and supervision and consultation with the partnerships either directly or in collaboration with the relevant programme developers.
