We do things differently

Why does it matter?

People who have gone through a difficult time sometimes behave in ways that are hard to understand.

Clients might miss appointments, resist advice, or avoid services intended to help them. Court assessments can feel like a punishment or a test to fail, which can make people feel re-traumatised and tripped up by “the system”. We want to change that.

Local authorities and solicitors need experts who are not only trained and experienced in assessing your clients’ needs but are also sensitive and skilled enough to get the most useful results from the assessment. With this balance, you can ensure the right help can be put in place.
