We developed an evidence informed, therapeutic model of care to support the best possible outcomes for children and young people in out-of-home care. Our model is grounded by the 6 principles of CARE.
Changing Lives, New Directions in Care
We Put Children First
Every day, Life Without Barriers offers support and care to children. We all have a responsibility to make sure their safety comes first – that they’re well cared for, protected from abuse and given the respect they deserve.
We create condition for positive change
To support the best possible outcomes for children in out-of-home care, the six trauma informed CARE principles guide our work with children, young people and families.
When caring for children, young people and their families we work in ways that evidence tells us makes a difference for them
Therapeutic Crisis Intervention (TCI)
This crisis prevention and intervention model teaches staff and carers how to help children learn constructive ways to handle crisis.
This home and community-based intervention program is for at-risk youth, their families and communities. Life Without Barriers is the MST Network Partner for Australia and New Zealand.
Our commitment to meaningful and ongoing family involvement aims to make sure children don’t lose their first and most enduring relationship.
We listen to the voices of children, family and carers
Giving Children a Voice
Children and young people have the right to have their voices heard.
Giving Families a Voice
We listen and learn from families to support the best possible outcomes for children and young people in out of home care.
