Child Related Support

Lorna Lodge works very closely with other agencies and Children’s Services to ensure residents access appropriate parenting support and to ensure children at the scheme are safeguarded. Lorna Lodge signposts residents to agencies that can provide parenting support and advice as appropriate and also invites other agencies to run group sessions for residents offering parenting advice and support. Lorna Lodge staff are unable to offer parenting advice to residents and are unable to monitor or assess a resident’s parenting of their child. This includes the monitoring of a resident’s adherence to a child’s protection plan or adherence to curfews imposed or requested by Children’s Services.
