Recommended Services and Support

Whilst there are some very good “befriender” or “help at home” services and many “Local Peer Support Groups” not all have the necessary Safeguarding Checks or Policies in place to ensure you and your child are protected and safe.

We have adopted a “Due Diligence Framework” for assessing and evaluating all those who we recommend to you so that you can be assured that:

  • Governance and Stability – basis and core standards of safeguarding, child protection and financial stability are in place.
  • Evaluated Services – that the services have been evaluated as having a social benefit.
  • Service Quality – that processes and standards are in place that shows service user needs are met.

We have adopted a basis Red, Amber, Green ranking of against each of the three criteria and we are happy to provide details upon request.
