CF Social Work pioneered and developed this effective assessment process whereby we locate ourselves within the family home or another safe alternative over a period to be agreed with the LA but generally ten days. During this time, senior family support workers and skilled social workers maintain a 24 hour presence in the home in order to intensively observe all interactions and dynamics within the family and complete a comprehensive parenting capacity assessment whilst maintaining the child’s safety at all times.
Reverse Residential Assessments are generally used when a child is able to remain at home under a Public Law Outline (PLO); is subject to an interim Order and is in a placement or the child is subject to an Order, is in a placement and the Local Authority are seeking to revoke the Order. CF Social Work are also instructed on cases where there is a disagreement amongst the parties regarding a Residential Assessment and viability needs to be tested. Benefits of this type of intense assessment include a thorough exploration of motivation, adherence to consistent boundaries and ability to make and maintain routines.
