Our Services

Therapeutic principles are applied to all our services

RESIDENTIAL CARE

Our residential services focus on guiding young people to develop their social, emotional, and functional skills. Supported by a therapeutic model we promote a positive outlook and try to find some good in any situation. We lead young people to raise themselves with achievable challenges.

Referrals

We work with families, carers and the young person to identify their most suitable placement. Our Residential Care will provide the best level of support to meet the needs of the young person.
 
Our placement process includes strict rules for the referral. So we need as much relevant information as possible. This may involve a need for extra details and a contact number for the current social worker. Although we may ask more questions the extra information improves the placement quality.
 
We will always provide a professional and timely response to your enquiry.

Placements

Our placements team is highly selective. The teams involved in both referral and placement are deliberately small. Smaller teams enable good working relationships to develop. This is beneficial for individuals making important choices about a young person's wellbeing.
 
Your trust in Gracewells to care for the young people in our homes drive the highest standards when assessing a suitable placement.
 
When managing referrals we never offer a placement unless confident we can provide the right care. We always consider both our capabilities and the specific needs of the young person.

Therapy

Our homes are run according to therapeutic principles with solutions that are adapted to the needs of each young person in our care.

We encourage young people to develop coping strategies, think about behaviour and manage emotions. We promote a positive approach to life, and the opportunities to gain the skills for independence. 

Emergency Placements

We understand it is not always possible to plan a placement within a residential children’s home. As a result, we may consider an emergency placement for short term crisis stabilisation.
