Children & Young Adults
Trewcare provide specially selected and trained carers to care for children and young adults with disabilities
We work with parents and main carers to provide the care they require to assist them in caring for their children / young adults. Whilst a large percentage of our service for children and young adults is provided through the Social Services department, we also provide care to those who wish to purchase our services directly.
Each individual child / young adult and their family / main carer have their own individual needs. We endeavour to meet these needs by matching the carer to the individual. This enables a carer(s) to work together with the family / main carer to establish a trusting, caring relationship.
We recognise the pressures on families / main carers when caring for their child / young adult. Our services are designed to be flexible and are tailored to meet the needs of each individual and may be provided from as little as half an hour at a time.
All our carers have a Disclosure and Barring Service check and Protection of Children Act List check. Carers receive training in line with government regulations covering Child Protection, and Working Together to Safeguard Children.
