Placement and Support Options

Placements are completed through a referral process. Properties are located within a two week time frame and consideration is given to the service user's desired geographical area.

The following are examples of the different placement packages offered by Care First Services:

HOUSING AND SUPPORT

Appropriate accommodation will be sourced in a predefined local area. The property will be fully furnished and the young person will have access to a four hour support session with a specific Support Worker. Additional hours of support are available upon request.

FLOATING SUPPORT

Care First Services provides a support only service for young people living in various settings. Support sessions will focus on the young person's needs and will ensure they have access to all entitlements.

EMERGENCY HOUSING

In the event of an emergency placement a referral must still be completed. A property would be offered as temporary accommodation until the young person's wishes were ascertained in relation to a more permanent tenancy and potential areas to settle. Care First Services encourage individuals to reside close to their established support network when this is deemed appropriate. Such areas are identified during the referral process.

SUPPORTED HOUSING

Care First Services offer a competent Supported Housing program which provides 24 hour supervised living arrangements.

OVER 18 HOUSING

We offer an excellent service for young people looking to become independent. Terms and conditions can be negotiated through our Housing and Management teams.

If you do not feel any of the above options cater for your requirements, please contact us as we are available to discuss the housing and support needs in your local area.
