At Nexus Programme Ltd we realise that you, as purchasers, have a right to assess the effectiveness of individual placements with us. This is notoriously difficult to measure when dealing with the developmental and emotional needs of young people.
As we tend to deal with young people who have experienced multiple previous
placements, we measure our success in the first year against a series of
measurable and witness-able parameters, both prior to (where the information is available)
immediately after and following the first six months of placement.
Number of incidents of absconding
Appropriate family contacts
Participation in reviews
Participation in individual programmes
We believe however that these must be taken in context relating to each young person and are only one part of the picture.
