Short term care

Providing short term accommodation in for children aged 0-18 years who are under Guardianship orders.

Short term care provides a trauma-informed home environment to young people who have been assessed by the Department for Child Protection as being at risk and are placed under Guardianship orders. 

We provide care specifically tailored to these children who have experienced trauma and have one or more Support Workers present at all times. 

Referral to this service is completed by the Department for Child Protection.
