Some service users may need support to reduce risks to themselves and/or others because they have committed or is thought to have committed an offence beyond reasonable doubt, but is un-convicted. These are often referred to as ‘Forensic’ clients.

In general these services are best suited to those that need an environment with either 1:1 24/7 support, or with some elements of shared support in a 24/7 package.

During assessment and transition we look at each person’s needs, wants, history, and what they wish to achieve, speaking to the individual, family, professionals involved and former care providers.

These assessments are carried out by our Resettlement and Projects Manager, and members of our Psychological and Occupational Therapy team. These professionals not only undertake assessment work prior to the service being set up, but also during the transition period, and as part of the support staff during the first weeks of a new service being delivered.

They then provide a report on each client and upon the dynamics within the shared service. This helps the team and professionals to better understand how the service can be delivered, taking measured risks, and provides ongoing training to enable staff to do this.

We ensure that our staff that engages and work with Forensic Clients receive individual training facilitated by the professionals involved. This is often relating to re-evaluating the effectiveness of risk assessments, and assessing the continuity of support and how this is affecting the way the individual is managing in the community with boundaries.
