Parenting

We have an excellent track record of providing Parenting Assessments across the country in Family Law proceedings and directly to Local Authorities. We have over 100 social workers available to provide assessments within a 4-8 week timescale.

All of our parenting assessments are carried out in compliance with The Department for Education’s Working Together guidance. Our assessors:

  • Focus upon the needs and views of the child
  • Provide a clear analysis
  • Focus on outcomes; identifying appropriate support services
  • Complete reports within PLO timescales

Our Social Workers are experienced in assessing parents’ capacity to change and understand concerns when considering complex issues including, but not limited to; substance misuse, domestic abuse, learning difficulties, sexual abuse and parental mental health.

Our robust assessments provide thorough exploration of the issues, strengths and vulnerabilities of the parent’s application and offer recommendations which allow informed decisions about a child’s permanency to be made.
