About

Ash’s Place provides independent social care services to people, as well as tailor-made training or support to organisations. You will not have to go through a call centre, be triaged or put on a long waiting list. We can offer you support from an experienced, qualified Social Worker and a qualified Teacher. New for 2021 we also have our very own Therapy Dog called Sweetie available on request!

Services Available

A Social Worker with or without a Therapy Dog can be booked for appointments to support children, teenagers or adults. We offer a variety of expert Assessments such as Mental Capacity & Assessment of Care Needs. We can also provide expert Advocacy support if required. Get in touch to discuss your requirements.

From basic awareness to more in-depth training, Ash’s Place can deliver. We have experience of working with Local Authorities and care homes and are well equipped to support you with the current legislation and also to prepare you for the upcoming Liberty Protection Safeguards.

Safeguarding for Children & Adults - Training & Consultancy

Your organisation may have to deal with a complaint or a safeguarding issue. I can help with this and offer advice and guidance. Perhaps you want to be proactive and ensure you have a robust safeguarding procedure in place within your organisation and that staff know how to adhere to it. I can work with you to do this. I have experience of delivering training and discussion forums to a range of people including people with learning disabilities, young people, students, front line staff, solicitors, doctors and local authority senior managers. Currently due to the pandemic I am trying to deliver training online where possible but please get in touch to discuss your requirements.
