We recognise the importance of good placement planning and will strive to only accept planned admissions to the home. There may be emergency situations and we will accept a referral and admission on the same day. Likewise, a planned departure from the home is beneficial for a young person, however, in some circumstances (eg Safeguarding or placement breakdown) a same day departure might be necessary.
Through effective Care Planning we aim to ensure young people have a positive care experience at Josh's Place, which ranges from pre-admission, during placement all the way through to departure and after care.
A copy of the Care Planning policy is available upon request.
If it is considered to be in the best interest of a young person (and other children living at Josh's Place) it may be deemed appropriate for a young person to remain with us beyond their 18th Birthday.
