Although unregulated, CFS Care Supported Accommodation have adopted the conditions of a highly regulated service to achieve the best possible outcomes for young people leaving care.
Our accommodation is staffed during the day and night, with the potential for additional specialist arrangements based upon the safety, needs and presentation of young people.
Staff are carefully selected to provide purposeful and meaningful support that will enable young people to successfully move into independence.
CFS Care have developed an outstanding Pathway to Independence Framework that encompasses key life skills, personal safety and wellbeing, education, employment and training, banking and personal finance management, housing matters, tenancy sustainability, household management and many, many other core issues for young people. This is an evidence based process will consolidate relevant AQA Unit Award Accreditation, Young Person’s Outcomes Star and a Passport to Independence plan that is used by local authorities to evidence progress and achievement.
Regular reporting systems seek to keep placing authorities and in particular, social workers and personal advisors informed of recent events, successes and general progress. We believe in maintaining effective and meaningful communication, which is an essential part of meeting the needs of young people and keeping them safe from potential harm.
