Children are referred to Lavender Group Homes from Social Care Services or other Health Professionals.
The starting point to a successful outcome is our comprehensive needs led assessment, which follows a referral and ensures that we understand each individual’s needs and aspirations.
Following the assessment, we work in close partnership with the child’s Social Worker and their families or other representatives to develop a Person Centred Plan. This sets out their support needs and details how they will be met and matches them to the appropriate Key Worker which will ease their transition.
Everyone is different and their transition reflects this in terms of timescales, visits, building relationships, overnight stays and the final move-in date.
Working with all of the parties, we ensure that it is a well-planned and managed process which incorporates the needs-led assessment.
