An individual placement plan is developed for each of our family clients.
The placement plan contains detailed client requirements and family preferences, shortlist of suitable facilities and a timetable of work completed and planned to achieve the successful placement outcome.
Our family clients can request the current status of the tasks on the plan. This formal approach helps with communication between all interested parties, including social workers in the hospital.
We also request feedback from families of our services and where we can continually improve and revise our service for future family clients.
