What WeCare offers?
A three tier approach has been devised that offers three levels of support dependent on the needs of the young people. The highest level is for young people with complex problems and a need for more intensive support, with services reducing dependent upon need and assessment. Given regular monitoring as part of the service it is hoped that the higher level package can be reduced as soon as a risk assessment indicates it is safe and appropriate to do so.
o WeCare will locate suitable accommodation.
o The accommodation costs are included in the fee.
o LA Approved Accommodation Status (all staff will have enhanced DBS checks)
