We believe that all children deserve a family life. Our Residential Migration service has been developed to provide stable, long-term foster placements for children who would otherwise be in long-term residential homes, hospice or hospital care.
We specialise in providing care for children who have disabilities, high medical needs, autism and learning difficulties. Our carers are experienced in supporting children with complex needs and can do this in a loving family environment.
The children live as part of a family in a stable and nurturing home environment. They can gain life skills and live in a community, access local resources, gain friends and have a better chance of semi-independence, where possible, when they leave care rather than being institutionalised all their life.
Not only does the child benefit from an experience of family life, our Residential Migration service will also save the placing Local Authority a great deal of money. Our placements are very successful and most importantly, we will do all the work for you; we provide assessments, matching and the setting up of services.
Credo Care has been successfully relocating children from residential and hospital care into long-term foster homes for many years.
It is possible to save at least half or two thirds of current expenditure from residential care, even more when young people are moving from long term hospice or specialist hospital settings. Please contact us to discuss your individual needs.
We will provide assessments of children in their current placement. Our skilled professionals will identify their care needs and assess whether they could be met in a foster care placement. We will look at each child’s holistic, health and education needs and make a recommendation.
The whole process could take from a week to a few months depending on your desired outcome.
In some cases, it may be better for the child to stay in their current setting. In this case, the Local Authority will have evidence to support their management discussions when agreeing budgets.
