All documents are stored and saved on their google drive system. This allows them to send reports / documents to social workers and other professionals instantly. They produce daily, weekly and monthly reports. The providers sends fortnightly weekly reports and monthly reports to the social workers. The reports were informative under each section highlighting the young person’s progress and any issues within placement. All reports were saved under the young person’s file on the google drive.

I was very impressed with the service. I met Ramina Soudavi and Abigail Fisher (Manager). They provided a very detailed report of Petrit's progress so far. They were very child focused during the review and has been very proactive in ensuring Petrit obtain a college placement within weeks of being with them. Also following the review they provide a summary of the meeting and actions required of them as well as what they have done so far. I really got the sense that they cared about the ensuring our children receive a high standard of care from them.

The home appears spacious, modern, clean and youth friendly. The home contains 4 spacious bedrooms, two shower facilities, open plan kitchen and a large garden at the back. The unit has an overall comfortable and homely feel. There is CCTV in the communal areas.
The living room was spacious, with two TVs and a table for them to all sit around together to either eat or do work. The young person’s room we entered appeared spacious with ample storage space and a desk for them to work and eat from.

This calls for empowered, resilient young people, who play an active role in navigating these paths.
