Comprehensive assessment for 16-18 years service users


Urgency Housing Organisation's comprehensive assessment

Urgency Housing Organisation have a 17 bed residential assessment  centre in which new young people can stay upon entry to the project.  During the first 28 days of introduction, we are able to clarify the exact needs and any specialist intervention required for the individual, in accordance with The Every Child Matters protocol. ( During  more complex cases it may require a longer period of assessment than 28 days)

The fully furnished building gives 24 hour support, maximising independent living skills within a multi-agency environment.  We accept emergency referrals and carry out a full comprehensive assessment of the needs and abilities of the individual upon entry to the project.  Each young person is allocated their own named keyworker, and will be given full life skills training, and support with external visits as appropriate.  We ensure that access to health services, educational and vocational services, and referrals to any external agencies are completed as necessary.
