How we work

We provide bespoke packages for local authorities across the UK

How we work

We work effectively and collaboratively with partners to deliver an outcomes-focused service, keeping the young person at the centre of everything we do. We provide support to help them achieve their goals and develop independent living skills to help them cope emotionally, financially and physically.

During their time in Transitions, each young person completes a practical workbook which evidences their unique journey into independence.

Referrals and admissions are part of the care planning processes, with rare exceptions of emergency placements. A robust risk assessment must be provided by the local authority and a placement planning meeting must take place within 48 hours of the placement starting.

As skills and resilience grow, hours are tapered so independence can be achieved. Young people who still need some support can apply to move into ROC Solid supported accommodation.

We work within the Every Child Matters framework and think outside of the box to ensure each young person is in education or training.

The young person’s specialist support worker also contributes to the booklet which the young person keeps for life and which demonstrates positive outcomes and achievements.

To smooth the transition to independent living, young people have the opportunity to move on to our supported housing charity ROC Solid, which offers tapered support in a house in the community

Our team works with partners to promote:

  • Learning and employment
  • Contact with family/significant others when safe to do so
  • Decision-making skills
  • An understanding of actions and consequences to encourage behavioural change
  • Citizenship and importance of having your say
  • Self worth and confidence
  • Positive links with the local community

We have access to a range of privately-owned rented houses and can respond to applications promptly.
