Description:

Juventas provide Care to children with Social, Emotional & Mental Health (SEMH) Needs.

Many of the children in our care will have previously experienced trauma, a sense of rejection, neglect, abuse and exploitation. We understand that such negative life experiences will impact upon their presentation and well-being, which in turn may result in a history of challenging or risk-taking behaviours.

Juventas aim to provide a positive and welcoming environment that will enable children to grow and thrive. Children Looked After deserve the highest standards of care.  Juventas provide this through positive adult role models, high standards of accommodation, access to broad leisure and recreational facilities, healthy food and a commitment to building upon the strengths of each child. We focus upon building opportunities to enhance wellbeing, promote emotional resilience and develop a sense of positive personal and social identity. Staff aim to maintain an environment of giving, rather than taking away.

Juventas augment and underpin our approach through carefully applied, research-based approaches. All children in our care have a Good Lives Model (GLM) plan, which is led by the child and provides keyworkers with planned sessions to undertake with the children. GLM provides the means to better map the progress of children and provide detailed analysis of their presenting behaviours.  Additionally, the principles of Safe Caring Practice is applied to every residential service.
