The Consortium for Therapeutic Communities Logo

The Consortium for Therapeutic Communities (TCTC) is a membership and practice charity which supports, promotes, develops and maintains the application of relational practice across a wide range of settings. It publishes an academic journal and runs an active network of training, sector and research groups across the UK and with international engagement. With a strong evidence based going back many decades, therapeutic community practice is alive and evolving in the UK (and globally).

With strong roots in adult mental health and children’s residential care and education, the theory and structures for practice are also now well established in the prison estate and addictions services.

Relational and psychodynamic practice is evolving to be applied in different sized settings – therapeutic child care has been a key development. The charity has a relationship with a quality improvement network at the Royal College of Psychiatrists where there is an accreditation route for practice.

Technology Enabled Care in Wales Logo

Technology Enabled Care Cymru is funded by the Welsh Government, hosted by Aneurin Bevan University Health Board. We support the shift to technology enabled care across Wales, helping transformation at scale and pace.  The Covid-19 pandemic required a transformation in how health and care services were delivered in Wales, requiring system-wide change at scale and pace. TEC Cymru supported this shift by rolling out Video Consulting Service (VC) across NHS Wales, ensuring health and care could continue to be delivered remotely.

We aim to: 

  • increase the understanding and knowledge of Technology Enabled Care in Wales; 
  • support the rapid scaling of Technology Enabled Care in Wales; 
  • support culture change; 
  • provide the evidence base for TEC investment and implementation in Wales. 

We’ll do this by: 

  • being the centre for TEC activity in Wales; 
  • supporting the identification, prioritisation and rapid scaling of TEC activity which demonstrates a higher value return; 
  • creating a TEC community; 
  • developing the evidence base for Technology Enabled Care.
