Within the North West Hub we have a wide range of Wellbeing and Clinical Services that our schools, care homes and foster agencies can access. Within our team we have Occupational Therapists, Speech and Language Therapists and Psychotherapists including a Play Psychotherapist.
Our team is supported by Wellbeing Co-Ordinator’s who are all psychotherapists working within the Hub, and a Wellbeing and Clinical Lead, who is a SALT, who supports wellbeing and clinical intervention across the region. Our Regional Lead is a Clinical Psychologist who supports where required with clinical input and intervention as well as managing the wider team.
The Hub aims to provide a comprehensive centralised therapy service with the allocation of, and access to, a range of specialist clinicians who can provide a range of therapy services directly into provisions as needed.
Services delivered from the Hub:
• Meet the needs of the children and young people in our care
• Be holistically integrated into the settings we support
• Provide clinical excellence with interventions that are effective and in line with best practice.
• Support our settings to achieve successful outcomes
• Are underpinned by the OFG Wellbeing Rainbow Strategy
Accessing Hub Support
The Hub utilises a comprehensive referral system where new admissions are automatically raised to the Hub where intervention is identified on Education Health and Care Plans (EHCP’s) and then this intervention is provided by an appropriate clinician. The service is also open to referrals from provisions where concern has been raised, and the Hub analyses the information to decide the appropriate level of support required as well as the appropriate next steps. This two-tiered approach provides a comprehensive level of support to our children and young people region wide.
