Our primary focus is about the individual needs of children and young people in our care. Our hope is that they can reflect on their time with us knowing they were valued and cared for in a nurturing and loving environment. We employ individuals who share our vision for success, creating a caring environment and great memories for young people.
Our Placement team work in close partnership with authorities in order to ensure all needs are met when placing a child or young person with us. This ensures that we can give them the best possible start in their new home as we open up new exciting opportunities to them.

Auditing and Monitoring Systems
Regulation 44 visits take place by an independent person on a monthly basis. We also have a compliance officer who works on ensuring internal monitoring takes place, and that our standards remain high. Ofsted inspect the homes as the regulator and provide recommendations and requirements where necessary, in order that the homes can be rated. A full report is supplied which can be reviewed online.

Feedback from a few of the local authorities that we work with.

The young person has made incredible progress in all areas of her life, this is the most settled I have ever seen her, which I believe is credit to the excellent and consistently good care she has received at First Blue. The young person has struggled to trust adults in the past but has managed to build some very promising relationships with staff from an early juncture. I feel that these positive attachments have formed a positive foundation. The home maintains an excellent level of communication with myself. I have every confidence that the young person will continue to have her needs met to an excellent standard within her current care setting.

The Local Authority have placed a young person who has complicated needs with First Blue Healthcare. The staff team have demonstrated a high skill level to manage this child and have the ability to address her needs in a sensitive way. They have reduced her anxiety level using a consistent approach that is both caring and positive. The home have been able to advocate for her with education and health. They attend all MASE and Care Planning meetings, and have a high level of commitment to the child. The Local Authority have acknowledged the high level of support that First Blue Healthcare have shown to the child in their care.

I just wanted to say a big thank you to your staff who supported the young person through their order! There consistent support, guidance and encouragement really helped the young person to get through their order. It’s also brilliant to have the same staff supporting the young person as I know staff in residential care can sometimes change frequently. The young person appears to be thriving in their placement and achieving in education. Your all doing something right!!
