Family residential assessment centres

We are an independent charity with four residential family assessment centres in South London.

We have an excellent reputation when it comes to understanding the families we work with and building trust. Our in-depth assessments also help social workers and judges feel confident in the very difficult decisions they are making about peoples lives.  


In-depth family residential assessment

Families who need a family residential assessment can come to our centres and feel confident they will get a fair assessment.

It took 9 weeks to make me realise they wanted the best for us, they helped us so much. We have now finished our assessment and we are now home. Without this place I think we would of lost our baby girl. So all I can say is be honest about everything, they are here to help you like they did us.” Parent

They will be supported and assessed by our very experienced staff using our in-house tools and the latest techniques. All this information is put into our detailed reports. This layout clearly how we came to make the final recommendation. Our recommendations are rarely overturned.
