Moving forward with Throughcare

We provide our young people with support and engagement throughout their living experience at Rossie, and beyond.

Our Throughcare team are compassionate and considerate of each young person, working with each individual to help improve decision making skills for their future.

Our young people receive nurturing and supportive care and education while staying at Rossie, and with our Throughcare services, we aim to help them prepare for moving on to a brighter future. Throughcare is featured in almost all aspects of our young people’s journey at Rossie and we are committed to providing stable support throughout. We try to mirror similar opportunities and experiences to a mainstream pupil who is moving on from school.

We are a member of the STAF (Scottish Throughcare Aftercare Forum). This provides us with up to date initiatives, current changes in legislations and new opportunities to benefit our young people.

Our Throughcare process

Staff and young people develop a plan specific to the young person’s individual needs and future pathway, focusing on life skills, health and wellbeing, and rights and responsibilities.

Transition Throughcare web

Focusing on the SHANARRI indicators, the Transition Throughcare Web is used to develop the young person’s Throughcare plan. Our young people complete the web before starting their Throughcare work.

Engagement and employability

Our young people take part in interesting activities and experiences which increase their employability. We work with the Volunteer Action Angus, Saltire Awards and the John Muir Trust, amongst other organisations, where skills can be developed and nurtured and qualifications acquired.

Transitions

We work closely with our young people to make sure their experience of moving on, or moving to another placement is as smooth as possible. Our staff ensure that positive, trusting and respectful relationships are developed while the young person lives with us.
