Five Rivers Child Care
Five Rivers is a leading independent, Social Enterprise that works with 'Looked-after Children' who are in need of specialist care services throughout England and Ireland.
Formed in 1989 to provide a safe and secure environment with as much normality as possible for children who have experienced abuse, neglect, family breakdown and traumatic relationships or for children who are in need of Therapeutic Residential Child Care.
Over the past two decades we have developed our 'Five Fundamental' services, each of which are principle-based and remain embedded within our complete range of,
'High-Impact Integrated Children's Services'.
Turning children's lives around
At Five Rivers we promote a strong, pragmatic philosophy, shared by all of our professional and experienced staff, that each child or teenager is an individual in their own right, with their own unique reactions to trauma.
We strive to ensure that the children and young people we work alongside have access to the right programmes to enhance the delivery of psychological well-being. Thereby offering a needs-led placement programme with endless choices during the care planning process.
Our aim is to offer children and young people high-impact professional support, underpinned by a robust practice model which helps them to work through their challenges and difficulties in Foster Care, Residential Children's Homes and Education Services. Children in our care are supported and guided by our experienced, expert therapeutic practitioners.
Our unique 'Integrated' approach over the last 24 years has enabled us to cement ourselves at the forefront of a sensitive sector.
