What foster carers who have transferred from other agencies have said;

"We feel strongly that there is a two way relationship with Chrysalis and that we can “trust” them at all times and the decisions they make. Through this we have been able to be honest and open when we are finding things tough and need that extra help and advice."

Lisa & Paul , Therapeutic Foster Carers

"…Chrysalis removed any stresses from us…"

"Finally an agency that see us as professionals…"

"We have found their knowledge and experience of Trauma and Attachment has been invaluable. With out this we would not have been able to adapt and change our parenting approach to support and care for the child in our care."

"The principles of PACE and the therapeutic approach are key to our success in managing an , at times very challenging, yet rewarding five year placement."

"Since approval, the on going support, supervision and training has been much better than I had previously experienced – consistent, useful…coming to Chrysalis was a refreshing change."

"Staff from Chrysalis were supportive, helpful and welcoming at all stages of the process."
