Semi Independent & Aftercare
Responding to emerging needs of young people leaving care, Daffodil Care developed two semi-independent residential centres which caters for young people from 16-19 years of mixed gender. These services are located in the urban areas of Artane and Swords and provide real life opportunities for young people transitioning from care. Through the provision of independent apartment living and a ‘do with not for’ approach, young people are actively encouraged to prepare for independence through a comprehensive programme.
We have developed a nationwide network of aftercare provision consisting of both residential and comprehensive outreach services delivered nationwide. Our residential Aftercare services are fully staffed 24/7 providing timely support to vulnerable young adults as they progress to independent living. Our nationwide network is testament to the support provided by our teams. We believe in support at every step, our onsite staff are accessible to residing young adults 24 hours a day with our aftercare teams dedicated to ensuring young adults get both the support and experience required in preparation for independent living.
Community & Outreach Programmes
Here at Daffodil Care we understand the importance of outreach support. We know the importance of this support in the successful transition for young adults to independent living. Our continuum of care is dedicated to developing relationships with each young person with the understanding that there are differences between each young person. Our outreach support is available to young adults including those over the age of 18 years as part of the continuum of care we have developed. Our team has the ability to adapt and create services to align with each different case and situation. Our commitment to this approach recognises the importance of this stage in a young adult’s life and ensures the best outcomes are achieved.
Our family focused interventions are tailored to the individual needs of the young person and their family. An individual Community Support Package can be designed to meet the needs of the young person in the community and family setting following an assessment using specially adapted assessment tools and techniques.
