In 2018/19 CoramBAAF full member agencies can benefit from attending our free workshops on An introduction to the Secure Base Model. One place per member agency (local authorities, voluntary adoption agencies and independent fostering providers) is available for each of the free workshops and will be offered on a first come first served basis. Places are still available for the workshop in Leeds on 11 March 2019. Don't miss out - book your place today!


The Secure Base Model, devised by Gillian Schofield and Mary Beek (UEA), focuses on the interactions that occur between caregivers and children, through the provision of a positive framework for therapeutic caregiving, which helps infants, children and young people to move towards greater security and builds resilience.

With children firmly in focus, the workshops provide an introduction to the Secure Base Model framework and specific related tools which enable practitioners to assess prospective foster carers’ and adopters’ parenting capacities and on-going support needs.
