Residential services

Parents who grow up in difficult environments can often struggle to give their own children the care and support they need. Through assessment and intensive intervention, Resolve works to break that cycle of circumstance and give every child the opportunity they deserve to grow up in a safe, loving home.

There were 68,110 looked-after children at 31 March 2013, an increase of 2% compared to 31 March 2012 and an increase of 12% compared to 31 March 2009

All too often, however, the vital support that families receive in a residential centre comes to an abrupt end when they return home. This means that follow-up care is either inconsistent or even non-existent, leaving families ‘high and dry’ at a time when they are most in need of ongoing support from the professionals that they have come to know. This can seriously jeopardise the progress that a family has made.

Resolve is different. We recognise that children and parents who need residential support are often exceptionally vulnerable and because continuity of care is vital, our specialists continue to work with families as they complete the transition of returning to their everyday lives.

Our clean, bright, homely centres are purpose-built to meet the needs of families undergoing assessment, offering comfort and privacy.

In this safe and welcoming environment, our team of specialists assess, support and continually re-evaluate the needs of families during their stay.

Our approach is caring, precise and personalised right from the start.

Families are able to access a wide range of professionals through Resolve: we work with social workers, mental health specialists, children’s nurses, health visitors, midwives, psychiatrists and psychologists and teachers.

We communicate with commissioning agencies every step of the way, providing updates and information throughout the course of our assessment and intervention programmes. Our written reports are thorough and robust for use in the court process.

Community-based services

For families that do not need a residential placement, we offer assessment and intervention within the community. Our team of specialists undertake a full and thorough review of all the family’s records and then undertake an initial assessment in the family’s home before preparing a tailor-made intervention programme of learning and support. Families are usually referred to Resolve by their Local Authority or through the legal system.  Our approach is caring, precise and personalised right from the start.

Rigorous assessment with expert support

We use a variety of evidence-based tools as part of a systematic approach to assessment, analysis and intensive intervention planning. All our work is carried out in line with recommendations from the Departments of Health and Education.   We use evidence-based assessment tools including the Home Observation for Measurement of the Environment (HOME) inventory (Cox and Walker 2002) and the Child Protection Decision Making SAAF instruments (Bentovim et al, February 2012).

Outstanding, purpose-built facilities

Our facilities are of a high standard and are designed to meet the needs of vulnerable families seeking support, comfort and privacy. Families are welcomed and cared for at all times during their stay; safety and security is paramount.

Experienced, multi-disciplinary expertise

Families are able to access a wide range of professionals with Resolve: we work with social workers, mental health specialists, children’s nurses, health visitors, midwives, psychiatrists and psychologists and teachers. All our staff are highly experienced. Each member of our team is registered with their individual professional body and has undergone a DBS check.  We also invest in regular training updates and have a vigorous process of supervision.

Continued care and support at home

Too often, children and families are let down by a lack of continuity when a residential placement ends. All of Resolve’s staff work across our residential sites and within the community, providing continuous and consistent support when children and families return home.
