Therapy As Standard

We understand that mental, emotional, and behavioural trauma in childhood can cause long term problems that may affect the health and well-being of children, families, and communities. Providing therapy to all our young people—we hope to address any issues as soon as possible. This helps to minimise problems at school, and improves their ability to form lasting friendships in the future.

Reintegrate Back Into Education

One size does not fit all, every child is different.

Our trained residential support workers and therapists work alongside the education providers to create bespoke plans for our young people.

Each young person will have varying levels of coping skills and resilience when returning to and/or moving education provider, so having an open mind about what pupils may be going through, how they will be coping with it, and what support they need is always paramount.

"Children who have experienced difficulties with education attainment have been supported by staff to re-engage with learning.

As a result, children are beginning to make good progress in their education." - OFSTED 2020

PACE Model Training

With many of our young people having experienced difficulties in early life, First Blue Healthcare is dedicated to using the fundamentals of PACE (Playfulness, Acceptance, Curiosity, Empathy) to help create a secure support structure.

With PACE, our young people can start to look at themselves and let others start to see them or get closer emotionally. In short, they can start to trust again! 

Testimonials

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 Healthcare. 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.

I have observed a very positive relationship between my young person and the team at First Blue Healthcare. As his Social Worker, the staff group have provided a warm and friendly atmosphere which has had a significant impact the young person’s life and his is now ready for more independence. They are very attuned to his needs and they are very good advocates for him. There is a real sense that staff really care and often go above and beyond, being positive role models for him. The Staff team have been very responsive to emails and telephone calls and actively participate in a number of different meetings.

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!!
