Services for children and young adults is very much a person-centred approach, bespoke to each individual.
Each care package is developed in line with the changing needs of the young person, proactively anticipating potential needs and pitfalls through regular dialogue with the young person, their family, social care and multi-agency meetings.
Young people have a care team built around them, with their interests and hobbies in mind.
For many, the time spent with support staff and buddies is the only time they spend away from their families. This gives carers much needed respite, while also developing the young person’s social independence and social skills.
