Evidence based approach
Throughout all of our services we would capture the views of young people experiencing transition. Parent/Carers, Health and Social Care Professionals and sector guidance all contribute to our cycle of improvement.
Our staff carry skills across several disciplines enabling us to offer different types of intervention work with our young people and also enabling them to settle down and experience the stability and consistency of care that enables them to develop positive attachments.
Our support plans are tailored to meet the individual needs of young people, encourage positive progress and act as an evidence base of professional practice. By monitoring a young person’s progress at regular intervention points we can constantly use a cycle of “Plan, Do, and Review” to assess all the elements of their intervention plan.
Gims uses a variety of models of Intervention and Prevention to help foster a whole set of personal strengths and skills that prepares a young person for adult life, we have mentoring scheme for young people who are vulnerable to involvement in crime.
An established key worker system is in place at Gims Care Solution, thus providing an allocated member of staff who becomes a primary contact for outside agencies. We believe in listening and working together as a team to capture a youth led voice that informs our working practices.
We also ensure that we proactively facilitate a young person’s access to a range of academic, vocational therapeutic activities and will being resources.
We work closely with the local community and other Multi-agency to support young people access a wide range of pre and post 18 services that will assist them gain more independence, development of their citizenship qualities and understanding their rights as they transit to young adult life.
Our aim is to provide high quality, effective support to vulnerable young people, in additional we want to go a step further and inspire young people to raise their aspirations and reach their full potential; with the foundations of a safe, settled and nurturing home environment.
Every day we will work towards enabling a young person’s journey through the care system to become one that brings them a step closer to believing that the system does not have to define who you become.
“We cannot change the past for you, but we can help you design a future where you have the skills, resilience, courage and networks of support that will catch you if you fall, praise you when you achieve and always remember to be kind to yourself and others”.
Gims Care Solution believes that our semi-independent housing for young people staff and partners are part of the cycle of positive influence that is embroidered into the DNA of our organisation to ensure that we are always aiming high and building a platform that allows young people to achieve the best possible outcomes.
We cannot avoid the circumstances that place young people with us, but we can ensure that they are supported, accepted, safeguarded and offered every opportunity to believe in the prospect of leaving the care system with a bag full of tools, knowledge and experiences that empowers them to look back with pride and look forward with a compass full of direction, purpose and a vision.

24hr Manned and Single Housing Solutions
Our semi-independent houses are staffed 24-hours by members of our highly trained team. Service user support is increased or decreased as required and in consultation with the placing authority to meet individual needs.
Every support plan is unique with special consideration to those with learning difficulties (SEND) and/or disabilities, as some may require 1:1 support 24 hours per day.
We use a range of models and frameworks as the one size approach does not meet the needs of young people who are diverse, unique and on occasions simply misunderstood.
1:1 Key-working sessions will develop a wide range of skills in areas of need to develop a safe level of independence so that they can safely transition into their next destination of independence. Their transition will also include an introduction to our Outreach program that can continue to support them in the future where necessary.

Long Term Placement
Change starts here
Gims Care Solution understands the importance of creating and sustaining a nurturing environment combined with unconditional positive regard, especially in times of crisis.
Our long-term placement package offers an environment that contains consistency, stability and structure with clear boundaries. Trust, confidence and self-esteem are built when young people recognise that the adults caring for them are committed and will not let them down.
Moving can be a daunting experience.
Gims Care Solution hopes to make this process as smooth as possible for all involved, ensuring young people are placed in the correct service and receive the appropriate level of care to meet their individual needs. When considering referrals, Gims Care Solution will always prioritise meeting both the needs of the young person referred and of those already in placement. We aim to respond to all referrals within a 24-hour period.
We will make every effort to appropriately match any young person to the most suitable placement. All referrals received by Gims Care Solution semi-independent service will be managed in such a way as to ensure minimal disruption to the young person referred, the young people already in placement, staff and the general running of the home.
For us to make an informed decision, we ask that local authorities send a comprehensive referral to our placements team, highlighting the young person’s behaviours, risks, needs and background history.
Our placements team will review the information and liaise with the home manager as to whether a placement can be offered. We will always be mindful of a young person’s cultural, religious, communication, and dietary requirements.

How we will support you and your child
At Gims Care Solution we know that nobody knows a child like their own parent or guardians. Therefore, we believe that it is best that we work together with you the parents to give you the feedback each day about the development of your child and what they achieved that day. Home care is by far the best way to support a young person with any learning difficulty or disability as they are most comfortable inside a place they know very well, and everyone knows there is no place like home.
We know your child can be a handful at times, so at Gims Care we will support you in every way we can to keep up with your child’s high demands and essential needs. Our care support workers are well trained and have experience working with children and young people with special needs e.g. physical disabilities, learning disabilities, sensory needs and Autistic spectrum disorder. They will help you and your child to live a happy and stress-free life while helping them to achieve an independent life in the future.
