Chariteens is an OFSTED registered Residential Family Centre situated in East London, which provides court directed parenting and risk assessments for young parents and their babies where there are child protection concerns. We provide a safe and nurturing environment for up to six young vulnerable families. We provide accommodation, monitoring and assessments of up to six vulnerable parents and their babies or children within a local community setting.
We aim to provide a safe, secure and comfortable accommodation to parents and their babies in line with The Residential Family Centres Regulation 2002 as (Amendment) and additional underpinning statute .
For each referral the centre receives, a risk assessment will be carried out to find out if the centre can meet the needs of the family being referred and that accepting the referral will not disrupt the stability of the families already living in the centre. The centre will ensure a placement planning meeting is held on the day of admission or no later than 72 hours for emergency placements. The centre will hold a planning meeting with the placing authority and the parents.
