"Feedback to parents is delivered sensitively and respectfully by staff in a child-focused manner. The family centre continues to use the ‘signs of safety’ model and are leading innovators in this area of practice. Using this method helps families and to more easily understand why they are being assessed, what areas of parenting are being focused on and what changes need to happen. Clearly written information is made available regularly and parents are clear about what progress they have made and what aspects of their parenting need to improve." OFSTEDRead More

“Just a quick note to say thanks to you and your colleagues for your hard work with this family, and your direct care of the children in light of the parents’ difficulties.
The Orchard House planning and intervention with this family was exactly what was required in this case, and the evidence gained through the assessment period was essential in making safe plans for the children in the interim period. Your working relationship and manner with the parents was impressive, and provided both parents with the honest and empathic quality of intervention they require to consider how to develop their parenting, relationship and their personal functioning.”
