REFERRALS AND ADMISSIONS:
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.
