Who these services are for
We see families where there are child protection concerns of a complex nature, either in care proceedings or pre-proceedings.
We offer treatment for children and families where there are serious problems which are affecting the family’s safety and stability.
We offer expert assessments of children and parents for civil and criminal law proceedings.
Why refer to these services?
We understand that the assessment of families where there are child protection concerns is very stressful. Our aim is to engage with families and gain their co-operation so that they can demonstrate their capacity to change.
We offer pioneering services nationally recognised as best-practice examples: our Camden Multi-Agency Liaison Team (MALT) has been recognised by the government as an example of best-practice for multi-agency working.
Our services are staffed by a multi-disciplinary group with contributions from child and adolescent psychiatry, psychology, social work and psychotherapy. The teams work closely together in order to make the most of different team members' skills and expertise.
We carry out complex expert assessment for courts in private or public proceedings tailored to individual children and families’ needs and the needs of the commissioners.
We can also offer individual or family therapy for children and adults where necessary.
We also offer the UK’s first Family Drug and Alcohol Court (FDAC). FDAC is an innovative approach to the problem of parental substance misuse and its impact on children in the family. It ensures that effective services are provided in a timely and co-ordinated way for parents, while at the same time focusing clearly on the welfare of the child.
