Transforming Care, Prevention and Support (TCaPS) is an outreach service managed by Islington which operates in Islington, Camden and Haringey.
The overall aim of the TCaPS service is prevent families from going into crisis, and ultimately to reduce Tier 4 hospital admissions and residential placements for Children with Disabilities who present with challenging behaviour by delivering a bespoke a six month outreach programme within the home and community. This is linked to the aims of the Transforming Care programme, led by NHS England.
Families that TCaPS can support?
Families who have a child/young person with:
Diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC) with Social Emotional Mental Health (SEMH) needs and/or behaviour that challenges.
Learning Disability (LD) with Social Emotional Mental Health (SEMH) needs and/or behaviour that challenges.
We hope that the outcomes achieved will show an increase in quality of life for the children/young people and their families, increased confidence and resilience and decreased need for statutory social work services.
How we work?
To achieve these outcomes, the TCaPS Key workers will use the positive behaviour approach to understand behaviours and how best to manage over a six month programme of outreach support. This service is very child/family centred, and so will be flexible in order to meet the needs of each family.
