We Love Collaborating

Secure Start® is looking to collaborate with organisations who share our vision of supporting happy, connected children.

Our recent and ongoing collaborations include:

The implementation of the Triple-A Model of Therapeutic Care in Donegal, Ireland. In its fourth year, the Triple-A implementation is a collaboration of Secure Start and TUSLA (The Child and Family Agency). The implementation has reached 50+ child protection and out-of-home care staff and upwards of 120 foster carers. The implementation continues via twelve local trainers, including six foster carers.

The Kinship CARE Project. In its second year, the Project is a collaboration of Secure Start and the Department for Child Protection in South Australia. So far, 50+ kinship care support workers and approaching 200 kinship carers have received training in the CARE Therapeutic Framework.

The development of trauma-informed resources for Goodstart Early Learning. One of our most recent and exciting collaborations was one in which we recently designed and produced resources for trauma-informed practice in the areas of childhood trauma, physical abuse, and neglect, for Goodstart’s 648 early learning centres around Australia.

At Secure Start, we have considerable expertise in:

  • Program development and implementation
  • Program evaluation
  • Content writing
  • Consultation
  • Supervision.

Past collaborations include:

  • Adelaide to Outback GP Program – Supervision
  • Adelaide Northern Division of General Practice – 0-12 Psychology Clinic
  • Mark Oliphant College – Psychology Clinic
  • University of South Australia – Psychology Training Clinics
