fabtic is proud to place the child at the centre of all its work.

With staff experienced in working with adults with mental health problems and children with firesetting behaviour, fabtic understands the often complex needs of children and families struggling to cope with the pressures of the modern world.

fabtic is sensitive, empathic and trustworthy in all its dealings with children and families, working to the strictest ethical and privacy codes.  All fabtic services are confidential, sharing information with others only when needing to protect the safety of a child or others who may be at risk of harm.

As a professional agency, you can commission fabtic to work directly with children up to the age of 18 years to address their firesetting behaviour.  Using trained, CRB-checked staff with over ten years’ experience of working with children with firesetting behaviour in a multi-disciplinary setting, we accept referrals from professional organisations including Fire and Rescue Services, Social Services, Child and Adolescent Mental Health Teams and Youth Offending Services.

If you are a parent concerned that your child is setting fires, fabtic can work with you and your child to address the behaviour and help ensure your family are safe from the dangers of fire.

Understanding the importance of developing a therapeutic relationship, we work with children on a one-to-one basis to deliver fire safety education in an age-appropriate, needs-focused way.

Whether you are a parent or a professional, we will work with you to address the firesetting behaviour.  We will ensure you are kept informed of our work and progress throughout, and that you receive the highest quality care – delivered with integrity and honesty – at all times.
