Stage One


  • It would be our preference that the young person is not aware of our involvement at this stage. This is to minimise the sense of rejection should the process go no further.

  • We would expect an appropriate person from the Local Authority to visit at this stage.

Stage Two


  • A visit by a Woodlands therapist and senior member of care staff to see the young person in his own surroundings. Parents/care staff/significant others also seen. If it is felt that the young person is suitable based on information and his responses, then we move on to the next stage.
