About this service

The overall aim of Barnardo’s PACe service is to provide high quality intensive support to young people aged 5-18 years who are experiencing significant difficulties at home or in school.

There are 3 specific aims of this service:

• To reduce the requirement to place children and young people in residential services, including residential schools and secure placements
• To offer young people support from their existing place of residence with the aim of reducing the length of placement in residential services and in foster placements and facilitating the re-integration of young people into their families and communities
• To assist young people to address the challenging/offending behaviours in a supported environment
