Positive Steps Intervention
We have several small projects usually operating as an alternative to secure accommodation. This provision is intended for one or two young people who require intensive individual support and are unable to cope with group living.
Positive steps intervention offers mobile, outdoor activity based services for young people in crisis. We focus on individual needs and breaking cycles of behaviour, with the flexibility to be able to progress to accommodation in a two bed home once a comprehensive assessment has been completed.
Where possible, children are placed and supported in mainstream education or other Local Authority provision. In our small units, where there is no alternative, education can be provided. Ideally, this is short-term and directed towards a return to mainstream. This educational support can be individual or group based and is co-ordinated by our approved residential special school in line with the joint DfES/DOH Guidance, "The Education of Young People in Care".
