Referral Criteria

  • Children and young people who may have intellectual and developmental disabilities with or without additional complex needs such as epilepsy, mental and physical health needs and behavioural challenges. In addition those individuals whom have autistic spectrum conditions. Young people who have social and emotional health needs.
  • Referrals will come via Health and Social Care Authorities. 
  • As part of the referral and admission process risk assessment will be integral to the decision making in terms of accepting referrals to ensure safe and compatible groups at any one time. Chronological age of prospective young people is not the main focus of the decision making but we take on board the level of risk associated with behavioural challenges and the needs of each person and how these will impact on each other. In addition there will be strong partnership working with local authorities to ensure compatibility.
  • As part of the referral  and admission process risk assessment will be integral to the decision making in terms of accepting referrals to ensure a safe environment at any one time 
  • Inroads will work together with professionals and families to agree the best time scales and transition for each young person. During times of transitions Inroads may provide outreach support to families /services to ease anxieties and ensure a smooth supported journey to encourage success for the young person in their new or returned placement. 
  • Those children/young people whom Inroads are able to support in a fashion that supports Inroads philosophy and the Charter of children’s rights will be offered a service.
  • Placement at Wolves View/Lodge will be reviewed through shared communications with young people, their families, associated professionals and Local authority commissioners as we value the fact that people change and suitability may not be a constant feature or in the best interests of the individual.
