Fees and costing
Standard weekly fees of £3500.00 are charged per family placement.
The exception to the above fees, is if the makeup of the family is five or more, and they require the use of two apartments to accommodate them then Standard weekly fees of £7000.00 are charged.
These fees are inclusive with no hidden charges, for example all our assessment is PAMS informed, 1-1 support/monitoring through the day or night, additional waking night, reasonable childcare such as parents attending meetings and or Court.
These fees include: pre-placement meetings, full assessment of the family, attendance at Child looked after reviews and Placement review meetings whilst the family in placement (including up to 5 days after placement); the Final Assessment Report is completed 14 days post the assessment period ending. There may be instances whereby the date of the final report is negotiated. Family Weekly reviews, Court Statements, or Interim Assessment Reports whilst the family is in placement as negotiated between the Local Authority’s legal advisor.
Accommodation, utilities, and basic equipment are all inclusive in the fees.
In response to referrals, we can offer a no-charge/fee initial service plan proposal based on a review of the documents and reports pertaining to the client family.
The aim is to address the potential merits of placement at Ty Connections, detailing how an assessment would be planned, structured, and delivered, subject to availability.
There is an initial 14-day quarantine period on all family admissions to the unit, to look at and prevent the risk and transmission of COVID-19. Within the first 24hours, testing should be undertaken, the Local Authority are expected to provide and pay for all testing if required. Note that this two-week period is separate to the parenting assessment period and a prerequisite for all placements.
Interpreting and translating services if required within the course of our parenting assessment by us, is not charged outside the standard weekly fees.
Court Attendance is charged at £300.00; this includes court attendance and court reports reviewing time.
We understand that flexibility is a vital requirement in any work commissioned by a Local Authority. There is scope at any stage of the assessment for termination to be considered or for a move into the community with work continuing in the family’s home or the family going into a different specialist resource e.g.: drug rehab, therapeutic foster care.
