We are a leading independent, Social Enterprise that works with ‘Looked-after Children’ who are in need of specialist placements throughout England and Ireland. Being a Social Enterprise means that we care passionately about creating positive social impacts.
We are child-centred, adaptable and innovative in how our services are designed. We demonstrate resilience, value for money and ethical commitment becoming the partner of choice for local authorities.
At Five Rivers Child Care we promote a strong, pragmatic philosophy, shared by all of our professional and experienced staff that each child or young person is an individual in their own right, with their own unique reactions to trauma.
We strive to ensure that the children and young people we work alongside have access to the right programmes to enhance the delivery of psychological well-being. Thereby offering a needs-led placement programme with endless choices during the care planning process.
Our aim is to offer children, staff and foster carers high-impact sector leading support, underpinned by a robust practice model. Helping and guiding them to work through their challenges and difficulties across our Foster Care, Residential Children’s Homes Crisis Intervention Assessment and Therapy and Specialist Schools. Children in our care at Five Rivers are supported and guided by our experienced, expert therapeutic practitioners.
We have a unique range of services which ensures Five Rivers Child Care provides the right placement first time. We want to help all children in care experience the care and support a parent would give.
