We are eager to meet passionate and unique individuals who want to make a real and lasting impact in the lives of young people in out-of-home care.

Fewer Clients – More impact:

  • Work one-on-one with young people in a model that has a real and lasting impact
  • Be supported by a small dedicated team doing something genuinely new in OOHC
  • Work from home and benefit from flexible work arrangements and salary packaging

As Professional Therapeutic Carer (PTC) at PIC your role is to establish and maintain a close supportive relationship with one young person in your home. Our Professional Therapeutic Carers have industry-recognised qualifications and professional work experience and receive full-time wages as case experts.

The PIC model matches one young person with one carer, this matching is based on the young person’s needs and past experiences and the carer’s professional skills and background. The young person lives together with the PTC, but unlike traditional foster care the PTC has the professional skill set to respond to high needs behaviour and to meet the needs of young people with a trauma background. The mix of professionally informed support and a homebased setting, provides the young person with a genuine opportunity to develop real relationships and attachments, that is key to the success of the PIC model.
