- Before completing the referral form, please read and consider the information below:We want to ensure all children benefit from this experience and request that all referring social workers share any significant information to ascertain suitIt is important to book early to secure a place on our camps and other holiday activities. We ask that all paperwork is forwarded at least one month buy generic valtrex without prescription before the event to ensure we have all appropriate and relevant documentation safely in advance.As we are a small charity, we ask the referrer to organise transport. We are unable to assist with transportation to and from an activity day or camp. In an emergency you will be called upon, possibly to collect a child if necessary. Camps are sometimes long distances from home, they will require very careful consideration for each child.For camps any medical issues or personal care needs must be very carefully considered in order to establish the suitability of our team to support the young person’s requirements.
It is essential that all carers and social workers discuss the planning and preparation process very carefully with the young people themselves. It is important to ascertain their feeling on these issues, for best preparation. This can be achieved through open discussion and careful planning.
Encompassed in our efforts to reunite siblings, we recognise it is not possible for all siblings to live together under the same roof. For camps it is essential to be very clear with young people about expectations of the trip with their siblings. We do not intend to encourage fantasies or illusions as to what the camp experience can offer with regard to their living arrangements.
- Other events, including those on our Creative Connections programme are subject to specific charges depending on how far we are able to subsidise the activities, grant’s awarded etc..
- Siblings Together camps and activities. Where there are concerns around challenging behaviour we will need to discuss this at length to establish how we can work together around the young people and also their suitability for our activities. We are unable to consider referrals for children and young people known to be agressive or violent towards others or who act out consistently high risk behaviour towards other children or staff, we understand all children to have experienced various traumas and challenges. However our camps may not be suitable for all.
