Since the establishment of the NTRCA in 2012 the Alliance has been successful in creating a practice community where therapeutic residential care is discussed and wisdom is shared amongst the leading providers in Australia. The NTRCA is very clear about what makes a viable and valued therapeutic residential care model, what works and what doesn’t work and what the standards should be. Members of the Alliance have individually published works and implemented successful programs for their institutions, organisations and in their jurisdictions. Given the breadth of knowledge, practice wisdom, passion and experience within the Alliance the time has come to become an outward facing organisation advancing therapeutic residential care in Australia and beyond.
