Community Based Assessments
Community Based Assessments are undertaken in the family home, for a period of about twelve weeks. All Community Based Assessments are designed to ensure the level of disruption to the child is minimised. Community Based Programmes can be conducted with the child/ren at home or if the children are in alternative care. This includes the child’s placement during the assessment and the travel for the child will be minimised wherever possible. The positive and negative aspects of returning the child to the care of the parent/s would be considered. The exact programme of assessment work will be tailored to the individual needs and requirements of each family. Our staff group are qualified and experienced social work practitioners in child Protection work and are wholly dedicated to offering intensive assessments sometimes in complex situations.
