After years of working within the sector, we wanted to establish a company to provide residential care as we have always thought it should be done, without any of the negative trappings often associated with children’s residential care. Our aim was to create a culture where young people are valued as individuals and are given the childhood which they may have missed out on.
We also wanted to change the experience for our staff. Historically, residential care staff have not been given the status that they deserve and turn-over of staff has been high. We want a committed, consistent team of people who will care for and support our young people as they would for their own children. In return we value our team and believe in investing in them and developing their skills.
At Positif Care we specialise in providing bespoke solo placements.
Our positive approach to behaviour support is designed to help staff manage challenging behaviour in the least restrictive way, focusing heavily on de-escalation and diversion techniques.
Our approach ensures course participants fully acknowledge the rights of those they care for and only consider physical restraint as an absolute last resort. All staff are trained in BILD accredited, risk assessed, physical holds to promote safety at all times.
