Meadows Care has always been totally committed and motivated to providing a high quality specialist service for vulnerable young people. We pride ourselves on reaching and maintaining OUTSTANDING Ofsted inspections in our market leading residential homes.
Meadows Care now operates a 16+ Service to compliment our residential provision. The service covering the North West region provides a wide range of support packages in self contained trainer flats to offer consistency, continuity and stability for young people in preparation for adult life.
The 16+ Service is managed by a Registered Social Worker with over 17 years experience in management and direct work with children and young people, which includes preparation for independent living. The service is also complimented by a team of experienced support workers who will assist guide and prepare young people to move forward.
The service can be a standalone service or the young people can access other Meadows Care services such as education and therapy.
Our 16+ Service has been rigorously inspected and has exceeded all standards stipulated for the placement of young people in leaving care and independent living settings.
All staff work in partnership with local authority and other agencies e.g. local colleges and apprenticeship schemes, Connexions, health, housing and benefit agencies to ensure that all our young people achieve the best possible outcomes.
Meadows Court is our newest provision and consists of a block of 6, self contained apartments on the outskirts of Rochdale. These apartments have been purpose built to a high specification and are situated close to local amenities and all public transport systems. They are fully furnished to an excellent standard and are fully equipped.
Our staff are on site 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Varying level of support are available dependent on the needs of the individual. Comprehensive assessments and reviews of progress are completed at regular intervals.
The purpose of the flats is to help young people move towards independent living but with support when needed.
Meadows care has developed a progressive service plan which looks to address the needs of those young people moving into independence. 16+ staff work alongside care, therapy and education staff to develop and improve each young person’s independent living skills. As assessment of the young person’s level of independence and their needs is undertaken by us once the young person has reached 15. This enables us to develop an individual programme for each young person to ensure that when they leave Meadows care they are totally equipped to live successfully within the local community.
