Care planning and review
We allocate a key work team to each young person and review plans monthly to ensure that their changing needs are regularly assessed. We evaluate the effectiveness of the support provided, make revisions where necessary and note any progress. Our regular consultations with young people, staff supervisions and robust internal auditing against quality standards, operational procedures and expected outcomes for young people ensures that our quality of care is maintained and improved.
Facilities and services
Swanwick Lodge offers excellent recreational facilities and a pleasant living environment where young people can flourish. Our residents have access to an on-site school as well as a Wellbeing team which provides general and mental health nursing and access to a psychologist and a psychiatrist.
Models of intervention
The Trauma Recovery Model (TRM) offers a recognised model of care and roadmap to help us support the children in our care. We also adopt a restorative approach to misdemeanours, conflict and difference which recognises that children live within a system of family and community.
