Our Multi Occupancy Services cater for young people whom can live within a group setting and amongst their peers of the same age group. These services provide 1:1 supervision and each young person has their own individual placement plan and assigned key worker. Young People placed in these services are supported to engage in Education and community actvities. Young people are also assessed by our Clinicians after admission and therapeutic or behavioural plans are developed based on presenting needs.

Dual Occupancy

Our Dual Occupancy Services provide care for up to 2 young people. These services serve to provide individual physical space as well as additional staffing supports to help the young person manage their lives and work towards their goals.

Our Care Framework

Positive Care’s Care Framework is based on theoretical approaches that underpin our care delivery system. 

We have incorporated and combined various evidenced- based practices providing a coherent theoretical framework that forms our Care Framework and guides the application of theory into practice.

The Framework has four stages, Entry, Stabilise and Plan, Support and Exit -at each stage the young person or adult on their journey engages in our care delivery system that is underpinned by practical applications of therapeutic practice such as the use of the S.E.L.F curriculum, a Strengths Based Approach, MAPPA, Therapeutic Crisis Intervention & Pathways Independent Living Programme to name a few.  

All of our team members are fully trained in the Care Framework and in our Policies and Procedures.
