Understand how to Support Positive Outcomes for Children & Young People
All children and young people benefit from experiencing positive outcomes, but positivity is especially important when children find themselves living in a residential care environment. There are many reasons why a child is placed into residential care but whatever the reason, like any of us, positive outcomes are essential for lives to be lived to their full potential, something which every child has an equal right to expect.
When considering positive outcomes, it is important to think about what this means before making any assumptions and forging ahead with plans for the future. The child or young person needs to be central to any planning process and it is vital to understand what they consider to be a positive outcome, rather than imposing ideas upon them. Child-centred planning is paramount, and the child or young person should be included at every step.
