Key aspects of JPHs supported accommodation for children services:

Safe and Stable Environment: Our services aim to provide a safe and stable living environment for children who may be experiencing difficulties or challenges in their family homes. This could include children who are at risk of abuse or neglect, unaccompanied minors or others who are unable to live with their families due to various reasons such as family breakdown or parental illness.

Professional Support: Children in supported accommodation often receive support from trained professionals such as social workers, counsellors, or youth workers. Our professionals work with the children to address their individual needs, provide emotional support, and help them develop life skills.

Education and Development: Supported accommodation services typically aim to support children’s educational and developmental needs. This may involve ensuring access to schooling or educational programs, providing tutoring or homework assistance, and offering opportunities for recreational and social activities.

Family Involvement: While children may be living in supported accommodation away from their families, efforts are often made to maintain and strengthen their connections with family members whenever possible. This could include facilitating visits with parents or siblings, involving family members in decision-making processes, and providing family counselling or support services.

Transition Planning: Depending on the circumstances, supported accommodation services may also focus on helping children transition back to living with their families, moving into independent living arrangements, or transitioning to other forms of care as they grow older.

Regulation and Oversight: Supported accommodation services are subject to OFSTED regulation and oversight by relevant Local authorities to ensure that they meet minimum standards of care and safety for children. Jessamy Platinum Homes for Children supported accommodation plays a crucial role in providing vulnerable children with the care, support, and opportunities they need to thrive, especially when they are unable to live with their families.

Supported Accommodation for Children Services

JPHS SUPPORTED ACCOMMODATION FOR CHILDREN SERVICE AIMS TO PROVIDE A KEY WORKER SERVICE. THIS KEY WORKER SERVICE IS INTENDED TO HELP THE KIDS DEVELOP INDEPENDENT LIVING SKILLS AND SELF-EFFICACY TO ENSURE THE CONTINUED SURVIVAL OF FUNCTIONAL LIVING SKILLS.

The transition from childhood through to adolescence is a difficult time for many children. Children in public care may find this even more difficult and frightening.

The key worker scheme has been devised to ensure that children and young people have someone to guide them through this difficult time and ensure that they have a voice in what happens to them.

The key worker scheme is intended to provide advocacy and ensure that children are central in the decision-making process. This may involve the key worker speaking on behalf of the child to other agencies involved with the child or advocating for services, resources, or placements that will be of the most benefit for the child. It could also involve the provision of emotional support or encouragement.

The key worker will work from a strength-based perspective. They must be prospective in seeing the skills, potential, and future of the child and will use this positivity to promote the utmost best for the child.

Types of Supported Accommodation:

Emergency homes provide immediate housing for children removed from their home because of abuse, neglect, or abandonment. homes serve children of both sexes, aged 16 -21 years, who are in need of immediate out-of-home placement.

Services include safe home, nutrition, medical and dental care, individual and group These, educational advocacy, life skills development, and recreational and cultural enrichment. The goal for all home children is to find a more permanent living arrangement, family reunification, or if that is not possible, to connect with a shared life family.

This type of home is often found in larger cities throughout the state and operated by private not-for-profit agencies.

Emergency homes:

Emergency homes are part of a range of services designed to address the needs of children who are at risk and their families. Through a highly structured, safe and caring environment, emergency homes provide 24-hour care and supervision for children, and respite for families, when a family is in crisis and a child is at risk of harm.

The goal of the emergency home is to provide immediate short-term accommodation, with the aim of reuniting the child with their family, or to move them on to a more permanent placement if it is not safe for them to return home.

Homes operate with small numbers of children and focus on preserving family or cultural connections. They are commonly located in houses in the community and staff strive to create a “home-like” atmosphere.

Support to the child and family is a key aspect of the home role, case management, advocacy and referral are considered a critical function to assist the family to resolve the difficulties that led to the child’s admission to the home.

This is done in conjunction with the provision of quality child minding and positive experiences for the child, to reduce the likelihood of further disruptions to the child’s education and peer relationships.

Transitional Housing:

The availability of transitional housing varies greatly across different regions.JPH is more committed to this type of housing as it is generally seen as a positive alternative to emergency homes and our research is still continuing to compare differential effects on child well-being. Although there is an overall preference for this type of housing, it has potential negatives in that the success of placement change is unknown and it may still not be the best alternative for some children.

One type of transitional housing is a shared living arrangement with a house parent. Children live in a normal house or apartment that is shared with a family or couple who is trained to be a support and provide guidance, but not live with the children in a parent role. This type of housing provides a family environment while allowing the children to still have guidance and support. A different type of transitional housing is independent living arrangements for older youth. This includes youth living on their own in an apartment and is provided with a small subsidy and guidance from a social worker. This allows older youth to learn to live independently but still have support when needed. Another form of transitional housing can be small group homes designed to replicate a family environment with consistent support from trained staff.

The goal of transitional housing is to move children and youth into more long-term housing that will provide stability and support. It is a stopping point between emergency homes and permanent placements. This type of housing is typically less regimented than emergency homes and provides more independence. It is turning out to be the preferred model for older children and youth because it allows them to feel more normal and less stigmatised, an important factor for teenagers.

Our key worker scheme has been devised to ensure that children and young people have someone to guide them through this difficult time and ensure that their voices are heard in decisions that affect them. The key worker’s role involves advocacy, ensuring that children are central in the decision-making process, and providing emotional support and encouragement. They work from a strength-based perspective, focusing on the child’s skills, potential, and future, to promote the best possible outcomes.

Supported accommodation models offer various types of housing arrangements for children and young people in care. Emergency homes provide immediate housing for children removed from their homes due to abuse, neglect, or abandonment. These homes serve children of both sexes, aged 16-21+ years, and offer a safe environment, nutrition, medical and dental care, individual and group counselling, educational advocacy, life skills development, and recreational and cultural enrichment.

The goal is to find more permanent living arrangements or connect with foster or adoptive families.
