We also receive consistently high praise from professionals and families who work with us.
Each family we work with receives one to one staffing support at the start of their assessment which is then regularly assessed and adapted based on the assessments from our Qualified Social Workers
A wealth of learning resources are available to our families to support them in their journey. These are targeted at improving understanding and knowledge around issues such as basic care, finances, nutrition and healthy lifestyles.
Our standard comprehensive residential placement is 12 weeks for each family but we can adapt this to suit each family’s best interests in agreement with the placing Local Authority.
An individual bespoke assessment and support programme is devised at the outset of the placement in partnership with the family and the placing Local Authority whereby clear objectives and regular reviews are agreed.
Our assessments form an interactive, evidence based process considering all aspects of an individual's parenting capacity and are complimented with various assessment techniques to review progress.
We provide a range of Residential Assessments, Community Placements and Viability Assessments.
Our residential services are aimed at young parents under the age of 16, care-leavers, parents with mental health concerns or learning disabilities and parents with drug and alcohol related issues.
Within the community, we provide parenting assessments, parenting programmes and support for families living in their own homes.
Our programme of positive parenting sessions are tailor-made to the individual parent according to their needs and will include a range of activities to help in every aspect identified in the placement arrangement.
From initial referral, we aim to respond straight away, but this can take up to 72 hours depending on the referral documentation, with acceptance from the date of our next vacancy.
A standard placement will last around 12 weeks.
We are proud to work in partnership with Professor David Shemmings and we have now incorporated David’s ARP (Attachment and Relationship based Practice) project to our assessment and support framework. The ARP project is a core training course and David directly trains all of our staff at Majestic.
We always communicate closely with professionals involved in the lives of the families that we have at Majestic. We make every effort to forge effective working relationships with those professionals and are extremely appreciative of the consistently positive feedback we receive from them.
Before I took this case, I had been told that Majestic was a good parent and child unit. I have to say that this has been my experience. The reports use language that does not contain jargon which means that the parent can understand. I look forward to working with you again in the future.
Thank you so much for going above and beyond to provide us with a helpful report. I continue to be impressed by Majestic’s conduct and have done since a few years ago when I first worked with you. The communication is excellent and the prompt response to crisis and concerns in exceptions.
Evaluative, well-reasoned recommendations are made to the courts and local authorities as a direct consequence of skilled assessment practices. A recent accolade received from counsel for a local authority suggested that one particular assessment be redacted and used as a model assessment for training purposes.
