This resource can be used to provide a period of ‘time out’ as well as providing ‘bridging’ into new and planned placements, either within the organisation or externally.
Medium Term - (Up To Six Months)
This resource is for short term placements for young people aged between 10 and 16 who need high levels of staffing following a secure placement or a placement breakdown. This period of time is used to identify a suitable placement allowing them to be re-introduced to residential living or into a family placement.
Medium To Longer Term - (Up To Eighteen Months)
This resource can also provide Intensive support to young people who have Aspergers,Syndrome, Autism, Post traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and other psychogenic disorders.
Five Rivers offers a ‘real’ alternative to secure placements for some young people who are described as difficult to place.
Five Rivers has a number of Social Pedagogues working within our Residential Children's Homes recruited throughout Europe to work as part of our 'Integrated Children's Services'. We have brought in these Specialist Practitioners as a direct benefit of being a Social Enterprise. Our Social Pedagogues work within our Residential Children's Homes as part of the staff team, they have extensive experience of Therapeutic Child Care and have often qualified at postgraduate degree level in Social Pedagogy. We have chosen to utilise this European model to complement and enhance our existing Integrated Therapeutic Services in order to deliver High-impact Sector Leading Residential Child Care.
