Make a referral
Salutem supports individuals to achieve their goals, believing passionately that every person, regardless of the challenges they face, can accomplish extraordinary achievements with the right support. Getting an individual the right care and support is of paramount importance to us at Pathways. We offer a responsive, free initial assessment to identify the individual’s needs and how we can support them.
We work with individuals and their advocates to plan a bespoke transition programme for anyone moving to one of our homes.
Referrals come to us from a wide variety of backgrounds, including placement breakdowns, Special Education Needs (SEN) schools, residential colleges, community support units and individuals looking to leave the family home for the first time. In each case, we assess the needs, abilities and personality of the individual in detail, to determine their suitability for a particular home. The purpose of our assessment is also to ensure that we are offering a home in which the individual will be able to achieve positive outcomes with regards to their own dreams and aspirations.
Referrals can be made by a social worker, care manager or the individual’s parents, although the care manager acting on behalf of the service user must be consulted before an assessment can take place. With the advent of the Personalisation Agenda and the drive towards Self Directed Support, we also anticipate and look forward to working ever more directly with service users and their families/advocates.
The Referral Process
During the referral process, the service user, their family, friends and/or advocates and the care manager/social worker are offered the opportunity to visit any suitable homes for themselves, allowing them the opportunity to meet the other service users and staff. Where it is not possible or appropriate for the service user to visit in person, it is important to have guidance from someone who knows the individual well and can make recommendations on their behalf.
Should all parties, including the service user themselves, agree that the placement is appropriate, the care manager will apply for funding. If, and when, funding is agreed, a transition plan can then be devised, which will be specifically tailored to the individual’s needs, in order to provide as much support as possible during the move.
This process is designed to help the service user, and all those supporting them, to feel as confident as possible that the placement will be a success.
Should an urgent situation arise, assessments can be undertaken on the same day as you call our dedicated central enquiries team. We can also carry out assessments at a time to suit the individual in need of specialist care, including evenings and weekends. We have a dedicated referral and assessment team who are able to offer advice and guidance on existing and future placement opportunities.
