Kairos Place is a specialist service providing support to foster carers, young people and fostering agencies. We provide contact support, transport, mentors and key workers.
All of our workers are trained to provide evidenced based models of intervention in the community, in the home and in schools.
Who are Kairos Place?
The KAIROS Place is comprised of a team of dedicated professionals with years of experience in working with and supporting families. Our team consists of Social Workers, Contact Support Workers, Counsellors and Youth workers. Our staff are both skilled and competent. They have a current DBS check and have qualifications in their various areas of specialism.
We take a holistic approach to working with the families that we support. We work in partnership with other agencies, foster carers and families to build on strengths and achieve positive outcomes and sustained changes in the lives of children and young people.
The team also offer counselling services and interventions for small groups in partnership with the Sunday Essiet Company.
Supervised/ Supported contact
Our contact services operate out of a neutral meeting place which is child centred and confidential. We endeavour to ensure that children and young people can enjoy the company of their estranged parent or family member in a friendly yet safe environment. The organization aims to conduct the service at the most appropriate place for the family. However, all venues are subject to risk assessment and this is reviewed on a case by case basis.
Kairos Place provide individual packages for families who are assessed as being suitable for supervised or supported contact. The organisation works in partnership with services involved in the families’ network, in order to identify, the best ways to support them through the process of contact. Upon request Kairos Place will provide a written report of each session and provide the estranged family member with feedback on a session.
We have a team of experienced mentors who provide bespoke support packages for children and young people. The mentors provide advice whilst assisting the child or young person in setting and completing tasks that they need to succeed in to reach their goals. The mentors also provide wisdom, guidance and counselling as mentees advance in their lives, careers or education. They are committed to helping improve their mentee's confidence, offering both practical and emotional support and giving them the skills to integrate into their local communities through regular contact and persistency.
As an organization we also have access to facilities, where we can supervise contact in Centre’s. This service is currently limited and may take slightly longer to arrange
We aim to continue establishing links with Children’s Centers across London. These developing partnerships will be to expand out support to families in line with the ongoing children centre agenda.
