Salford Therapeutic Advisory & Referral Service for Looked After Children (STARLAC) provides an accessible and responsive CAMH service to Looked After Children and young people, their families, carers and significant adults in their lives. The service is delivered in a range of placements, including those from the private, voluntary and independent sector.
