Our aim at Aftercare North West is to provide high quality, person-centred care by implementing evidence-based interventions and monitoring change. We will achieve this by putting in place a new model called PRIME in collaboration with our Clinical Psychologist colleagues at LifePsychol Ltd. which tracks change in a young person’s behaviour as well as their emotional and mental wellbeing.

The five components of the PRIME model are:

  • Psychological Assessment
  • Regular Outcome Measurement
  • Individualised Care Planning Targets
  • Multi-Faceted Formulations
  • Evidence Based Interventions

The PRIME model sets out a psychologically informed care pathway for Looked After and Adopted Children that the Independent Children’s Home Association regard as “the new gold standard” and Sir Martin Narey described as “the missing link in the child care sector”

Aftercare North West are proud to be the first residential care provider in the UK to meet the PRIME standards.
