A structured model
Our specialist team of social workers are experienced at safely handling discharge of care orders on PWP cases or seeking Special Guardianship Orders. They take a child-centred approach that thoroughly assesses the short and long-term needs of the child.
An evidence-based approach
We are meticulous at gathering the right evidence to support the right plan for the child.
From day one of the project we begin gathering all relevant documentation to prevent delay later in the process. This allows time for close communication with all involved with each child or young person to ensure evidence is ready for court and everyone has had an input into a robust plan of support; whether this be an SGO support plan or a Child In Need / Early Help step down plan of continued support for the family.
Supporting Special Guardians
We also support the Special Guardian in accessing mainstream support, where necessary, and make them aware of their entitlement to benefits. Where it is considered to be beneficial to the child’s welfare, and to support the Special Guardian after the order has been made, we implement other support requirements as part of the overall support plan.
Who we’ve helped
We couldn’t be where we are today, helping secure permanence and reducing costs, without the commitment from our local authority clients to do things differently.
Let us help you
We’ll help you realise cost-savings by safely discharging looked-after children from your local authority’s care; all whilst securing a place of permanence for the child.
