CATCH – Children and Trauma Community Hub – helps education professionals build their knowledge and understanding of:

  • Looked-after children

  • Previously looked-after children

  • Children with a social worker

CATCH (formerly The Adopter Hub) was originally developed as a pilot in 2017 with a grant from the Department of Education to provide accessible information and support for adopters. It has now grown to partner with education professionals in recognition of the vital role they play in helping children to reach their full potential.

CATCH is a valuable tool for all schools and education professionals wishing to take a trauma-informed approach in their work supporting children who have been adopted, are looked after or have a social worker.
