Our Story

A company built by practitioners, for practitioners

Started in 2009, Social Care Solutions was born out of a desire to see higher standards in foster care assessment and training within the sector, with an emphasis on strengths-based practice and trauma-informed care provision. Over time, we have grown from one individual contractor to a team of over 60 social workers, psychologists, human service practitioners, therapists and teachers.
