Urgent Residential Care Referrals

Assessment of Needs and Risks

For those in need of an emergency placement, our rapid and responsive service is available to Local Authorities nationwide seeking immediate accommodations for young individuals, regardless of the duration. Our well-equipped and fully furnished residences are backed by dedicated care staff, ready to support any young person in a timely manner. We prioritize creating a welcoming environment to ensure their immediate needs are met during their stay.

Upon receiving a referral at Bright Secure Future, we carefully consider the following factors:

  • Assessment of Locality Report
  • Assessment of Risk of harm towards others
  • Assessment of Vulnerability
  • Assessment of Emotional Coping Strategies
  • Assessment of Educational Needs
  • Assessment of Independent Living Skills to be developed
  • Assessment of the young person’s ability to integrate with the current group

After conducting these assessments, a decision is made regarding our capacity to accept the referral. However, we highly value the chance to meet the young person face-to-face for a thorough review, allowing us to understand them better and evaluate our ability to provide support.

Our approach involves encouraging young individuals to gradually assume responsibility for their lives and enhance their living skills. In cases of moderate learning difficulties or behavioral issues, we collaborate with supporting agencies to address behavior and assist with emotional coping strategies.
