- ItemOperationalising cluster foster care schemes as an alternative form of care(Stellenbosch University, Department of Social Work, 2016) Du Toit, Willem; Van der Westhuizen, Marichen; Alpaslan, NickyAlthough South African policy and legislation make provision for cluster foster care schemes (CFCSs) as a form of alternative care that provides children with care within a family context, clear guidelines regarding their operationalisation are lacking. This study explores the elements necessary to operationalise CFCSs. The discussion is based on a qualitative research study among managers of existing CFCSs. Findings provide an insight into the nature of CFCSs, management practices, the utilisation of different network structures in the community and support to and from the community.
