Children & Young People

No single child or family is alike. That is why home and residential care for children with complex acquired and congenital conditions is not only a specialist but highly adaptive, intuitive process. From specialist medical care for a child throughout the course of his or her lifetime, to more practical and emotional support for the child’s family and friends, our CYP (Children & Young People) team helps people get the most out of life.

How do we support children and young people with complex care needs?

Our services for children and young people with complex clinical conditions are centred around the specific needs of the child and their family, covering both home care and residential care. All home care packages for children carefully reflect the needs of the individual and are overseen by a qualified registered paediatric nurse, and every member of our wider CYP team is trained in delivering this care to the highest quality.

Our specialist children’s nurses work with the child and their family, CCGs and case managers, as well as schools, colleges and universities, to create a personalised care plan that meets the individual’s preferences and needs. It’s designed to not only to support the individual in daily life, but to enable them, empower them, encourage them to meet their aspirations and goals. The care given is regularly assessed and adapted, and commissioners pay only for what is actually required.

The transition from paediatric to adult services is often very challenging, so our staff members are trained in supporting and guiding young people through this significant transition, ensuring it happens as smoothly as possible.

In our residential homes, the Registered manager is responsible for overseeing the safety and care of each resident in conjunction with a team of trained support staff.

Whichever support is provided, be it live in or live out care in the home, or residential care setting, we help to make the experience positive and affirmative, while keeping the best interests of our young clients close at heart.
