KEEP Standard

The KEEP Standard programme is designed for foster or kinship carers with children aged 5-12 years. KEEP Standard is a 90 minute weekly group programme which runs over 16 weeks. The programme has a specific weekly curriculum and extra sessions are built in to allow flexibility according to need.  If more time needs to be spent on fine tuning charts for example, this can easily be done. The curriculum is designed to use the issues and ideas brought by the participants, and is tailored to their needs. There is a manual for the facilitators and summaries and handouts for the carers. 

If a carer misses a session the facilitators provide a catch up session at home. This has been very helpful in maintaining a high level of engagement in the programme.
