Residential Care

Our homes deliver a model of care centred around positive parenting, where relationships of mutual confidence will develop within a context of just, clear and socially appropriate boundaries. The Positive Behaviour Support Plan methodology that we implement across all of our residential services is person-focused, educational, regardful, proactive and at the same time facilitates individuals to be as self – sufficient and safe as possible.

We support our children and young people through collaborative and close working relationships with other professionals including Social Workers, Education, CAMHS, Health and other partner agencies.

Our goal is to ensure that all children and youth live in a healthy, supportive environment while promoting the production of good self-esteem, resilience and individuality, prepared to move back into the family home, foster – care or productive passage into self-sufficient adult life.

Residential Care
Our Residential Services

At Solace care we are dedicated to cultivating transformative paths that pave the journey towards healing from their past and imparting new ways to manage life. The goal is to facilitate the young person to bring about improvements in their social, psychological, education and general welfare skills in order to impart a sense of rehabilitation from adverse life events, to be able to return to a family lifestyle.

A child or a young adult's exposure to mistreatment or traumatic experiences can often result in a loss of fundamental capacities that are needed in managing and building interpersonal relationships and self – regulation. We seek to resolve the short term and long-term repercussions of a child or young adults' experience with a number of various traumatic experiences and mistreatment.

To name a few of the experiences that can be classified as 'detrimental childhood experiences' :

  • Sexual Abuse
  • Emotional Abuse
  • Physical Neglect
  • Emotional Neglect
  • Domestic Violence
  • Substance Abuse within the household
  • Divorce
  • Incarcerated household member
  • History of mental illness in the household

As per NSPCC “Child abuse is when a child is intentionally harmed by an adult or another child – it can be over a period of time but can also be a one-off action. It can be physical, sexual or emotional and it can happen in person or online. It can also be a lack of love, care and attention – this is neglect”.

Emotional abuse is any type of abuse that involves the continual emotional mistreatment of a child. It's sometimes called psychological abuse. Emotional abuse can involve deliberately trying to scare, humiliate, isolate or ignore a child.

A parent or carer has a duty to take care of a child's basic needs, which includes providing food, shelter, and clothes, and keeping the child clean and hygienic. A failure to meet these basic needs is physical neglect.

Families that suffer from substance abuse are more at risk for domestic violence, mental illness, divorce, and sexual and physical abuse than other families.

Divorce creates emotional turmoil for the entire family, but for kids, the situation can be quite scary, confusing, and frustrating.

Some children exposed to violence learn to resolve their own conflicts in a violent manner. Others seem to become desensitized to violence and the pain and distress of others. Some retreat into a shell, avoiding people and the world around them.

Transition Services

Working closely with therapeutic professionals, residential staff, and partner local authorities, we have created an efficient model for transitional care that ensures children and young people transition from residential care into foster care, supported living or family settings as quickly as circumstances allow and with the highest probability of success. The model ensures the continuation of wraparound services with regards to health, therapy and education services, leading to long term household placement stability for children and young people who have experienced breakdowns numerous times in the past.

In agreement with all the parties involved, we aim to make transition arrangements that are best suited to the young person's individual needs and emotional progress. This makes the transition as smooth as possible.
