For Local Authorities outside of the framework, please complete the above form. Alternatively email to enquire about placement availability.


Although it is always our preference to admit children and young people on a planned basis, we understand that this is not always possible and, at times, young people need to move placement with very little notice. At Positive Outcomes, we are able to respond to the needs of the Placing Authority and will work with Social Workers, young people and their families to ensure that any anxieties around moving in are met with reassurance and ongoing support. The trauma of a placement move for a young person cannot be underestimated.

Just as Placing Authority’s will have high expectations of us, then we will have high expectations of you!

We expect that young people are appropriately supported through Social Work visits, strong communication and sharing of information. We will always put the child first, even if that involves challenges of the Authority. Advocates will be sought for our children if requested or when this is deemed necessary. We can all agree, the consideration of young person’s views, wishes and feelings are paramount in promoting stable placement.

Positive Outcomes Childcare are part of the West Midlands framework.

Therapeutic Model

Our care is therapeutically informed on a daily basis, and our training programme and therapeutic leadership supports us to translate the learnings from leading theory and practice in neuroscience, psychology and relational therapy into the day-to-day practices and interactions within the residential care setting. This is evident in the way our care teams navigate and approach daily discussions with young people, manage and respond to challenging situations, attune to and demonstrate empathy and compassion for the children we care for. Our approach fosters an equally high measure of empathy and guidance to support children to feel safe enough to explore and understand their reactions, whilst also developing a positive solution focused approach to navigating and coping with difficult situations.

Adopting a trauma-informed approach requires us to reflect not only upon how we support the children in our care, but it also requires us to carefully reflect upon and consider the way in which we support, nurture and develop each other as colleagues.

“Listen to your mind, listen to your heart. Never put yourself down and keep your aim high. Positive Outcomes will always believe in you”

At Positive Outcomes, we strongly believe every child or young person we look after has the potential for positive change irrespective of the circumstances which necessitated their placement.

We seek to maximise each child or young person’s potential for social and educational growth and development by working in partnership with education, health, social workers and families to provide a nurturing environment.
