Granary Families Assessment Centre

Our Mission

“To provide a compassionate environment for families where robust, fair and evidence-based assessments of parenting skills and capability for Local Authority and Courts are conducted.  Relationships between families and babies are formed, nurtured and supported to be the best they can prior to reintegration in the community or possible separation.

Dedicated professionals provide a range of parental assessments and holistic therapeutic services to build better relationships in a homely and intimate environment.

Our service is rooted in Christian values.  It is transformational and non-discriminatory, and we ensure the child is central to everything we do, irrespective of disability, race, culture, sexual orientation, religion, gender or ethnic background”.

 

The residential assessments that we offer vary from family to family and the length is dependent on the courts. During the assessment we operate in a phased manner with regular reviews and decisions to promote the welfare of child. Our dedicated team of professionals work closely together to create the individual care plans.  

The Centre works closely with a wide range of professionals to secure positive outcomes for prospective families and their children. They are kept safe and at the centre of all planning and activities. The needs wishes and feelings of the child are central to our services. This is achieved by following holistic and individualist care plans which are evidence based. These can then be used to inform professionals at all levels of the mother’s parenting, emotional current functioning capacity and future capabilities.

Granary Families offers a tranquil environment where a wide range of therapeutic services are readily accessible, including the provision of the child being looked after by staff in emergencies.

What is supervised contact?

Contact with a child will be in the presence of a trained contact worker, supervised by experienced members of staff. These sessions are supervised by trained staff who will intervene when absolutely necessary in a professional manner. The staff member from the contact session will also complete an un-biased factual observation report recording what happens during the contact.
