Description:

At Timeout, we are a family run organisation and our ethos and philosophy is based on a systemic approach to promoting the child’s emotional well-being. We specialise in 1:1 care in both solo and dual occupancy homes. We ensure that a holistic view is taken to all aspects of the child’s development, whether it is in education, therapy or therapeutic care. By tracing the child’s footprint, we can gather the necessary information to inform our practice to assist the child’s recovery.

To define systemic, we believe that everyone who is involved in the child’s recovery has an understanding of the impact of abuse and neglect and its demonstration in current behaviours. This is
communicated via training, consultation & reflective practice that is led by our clinical team.

Children’s therapeutic needs are often most effectively met by the development of a safe, consistent and nurturing relationship, with a trusted adult. The promotion of this relationship is the primary
therapeutic goal for each child placed.

Our aim is to ensure that each child receives an individualised treatment plan which evidences their progress and changes in behaviour. The clinical information guides the team and allows informed decision-making on interventions and strategies. We ensure that this progress is shared and explained with the nominated professionals to guarantee transparency.
