Five Rivers Children’s Services

Turning children’s lives around through the delivery of high-impact sector leading services.

Formed in 1989, we provide therapeutically informed practice. A place where children and young people can recover from experiences of abuse, neglect, family breakdown and trauma.

Over the past 25 years we have developed our  Fundamental’ services, each of which are principle-based and remain embedded within our complete range of  ‘High-Impact Sector Leading Children’s Services’.

Five Rivers is a leading independent, Social Enterprise that works with ‘Looked-after Children’ who are in need of specialist placements  throughout England and Ireland.

At Five Rivers we promote a strong, pragmatic philosophy, shared by all of our professional and experienced staff that each child or young person 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, staff and foster carers high-impact sector leading support, underpinned by a robust practice model. Helping and guiding them to work through their challenges and difficulties across our  Foster Care, Residential Children’s Homes  Crisis Intervention Assessment and Therapy and Specialist Schools. Children in our care at Five Rivers are supported and guided by our experienced, expert therapeutic practitioners.

Our unique integrated approach over the last 25 years has enabled us to cement ourselves at the forefront of a sensitive sector and remain an independent Social Enterprise.

We have a unique range of services which ensures Five Rivers provides the right placement first time.
