It has always been important for us at Enhanced Care to bring a different kind of Children’s Residential Service to the North East of England. Our focus is to provide an “enhanced” level of care, exceeding expectations, and providing positive and improved futures for the children and young people that we look after in Teesside, County Durham and the North East.
- Enhanced Care – to enable our children and young people to develop their individuality and independence.
- Enhanced Service – delivering a consistent standard that is appropriate and responsive to the individual’s needs in an efficient and effective manner, and to also help our Residents fulfill their emotional and social needs.
- Enhanced Value – to make our services as affordable as possible so they are available to the many and not just the few.
- Enhanced Partnerships – to maintain honest, open and fair working practice with our NHS and Social Service partners.
It is our choice of staff and consultants that is at the heart of Enhanced Care. We only appoint people who are experienced, professional and enjoy caring for people as if they are looking after their own family. We have a continuous, comprehensive training and assessment programme and continually monitor feedback from our looked after children and their families.
Our staff liaise with local and host area Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) to ensure a young person’s mental health needs are adequately met.
Our management and residential support staff have extensive experience working with children and young people in residential care. They work alongside NHS child and adolescent mental health services in the north-east.
Looking to the Future
Enhanced Care is looking to expand its Childrens Care Services beyond Middlesborough, Teeside and County Durham to right across the North-East of England. We also have a programme of developing and improving all aspects of our care homes, including the maintenance and technology of our facilities, employee development and the latest in therapeutic and medical care.
