Scope and pricing
Unlike previous allocations of funding for the provision of therapeutic residential care, which have specified a base unit price per child and then applied a specific therapeutic care loading to purchase a number of defined inputs, through this process we are offering prospective service providers an opportunity to develop a model of therapeutic residential care from the ground up, and detail the price for delivering that service.
