Chrysalis Associates is an independent agency which provides psychological and therapeutic support to foster and adoptive families. Based in Sheffield, we have been established since 2005 and in 2006 became registered as an Adoption Support Agency.
We have developed a high reputation with the local authorities who commission our services and with the families we have worked with. Chrysalis is also a training provider for professionals working with children and families.
In 2012 we decided to set up our own independent fostering agency, Chrysalis Consortium, so that children and foster carers could benefit from an holistic therapeutic approach, rather than therapy being an ‘add on’ to a foster placement. By holistic we mean that the starting point for all our foster placements will be ‘what is going to help this child to heal and flourish’? I.e. what is going to be therapeutic for this child? Healing through fun and good relationships will be the main point of all our placements.
We currently have three office bases for our fostering agency and we recruit carers within 90 minutes of each base. Our main base is Sheffield but we have additional bases in York and Brighouse. If you are interested in becoming a therapeutic foster carer with us, please do not hesitate to contact us.
