The ACM team of Case Managers who work with Children and Young People have many years experience of working with children and their families.
The Case Managers work with children with a variety of complex needs, including acquired brain injury and cerebral palsy. The service each child receives is developed specifically for them, to ensure that they receive the appropriate care and support, to enable them to achieve their potential.
Once we have received instructions from the solicitor, family or fund holder, we will make contact with the client and family to arrange an initial assessment meeting. This is normally held in the client’s own home, and will include a detailed discussion on all the key issues and requirements that may need to be addressed by a Case Manager.
Following the initial assessment we will normally complete a detailed report with a summary of our recommendations and associated costs. This will be sent to the solicitor, client and their family member.
Once we have confirmation that all parties are in agreement to commencing Case Management, we will allocate and introduce a suitably experienced and qualified Case Manager to start work on the recommendations.
Areas that we can help with include:
- Providing support and advice to the family;
- Accessing therapies;
- Establishing therapy teams;
- Supporting the child’s education;
- Managing the recruitment and employment of Support Workers;
- Advising on housing adaptations;
- Resourcing and recommending specialist equipment;
- Advising on holidays and leisure activities; and
- Advocating on behalf of the child and their family.
