WHY IS FAMILY BEST?

You may ask, “If you say that family is best, why do you intervene and 'rescue'?”

The children who we assist through our ‘Rapid Response’ department are categorised as SEVERE risk cases. We will do ALL we can to assist and work with a child within the child’s family or current environment, without removing the child unnecessarily.

If a child is brought into our Urgent Rescue Centre, it is because they require urgent INTERVENTION to keep them safe; this may be from repeated abuse, risk of death and escape from high level repetitive trauma.

A child should never be removed from his/her parents or guardians unless it is agreed to be in the child’s best interest, in a temporary basis and as a last resort. If you want further information on how we go about these decisions and what authorities we do this alongside, please get in touch!
