The Park Road Team
To provide the best quality of care, the staff at Park Road accommodate and work to the young people’s individual needs. Park Road staff undertake a wide range of robust training to ensure we are catered to manage behaviours, as our young people’s safety is paramount. In order, to effectively manage behaviour, our focus is using therapeutic approaches to understand the reasoning behind the behaviour, therefore, our training includes understanding trauma, and adverse childhood experiences and how these have impacted on the young person. We use the PACE approach, as we believe positive parenting is the key to support the young people feel more secure with adults and allows them to build the skills for a successful life. Park Road have supported young people transition to home, foster plans, and where this is not possible, we have had long term placements.
The staff team ensure that the young people views, wishing, and feelings are being heard, and the home have connections with multi-agencies to support this. We provide the young people with opportunities to do their chosen hobbies and activities and create positive memories. The staff will create journals for the young people at Park Road with all their best memories.
