Enhanced Residential Care in Glasgow: An Initial Evaluation

Abstract

Adolescents who are looked after and away from home may present various behavioural needs which challenge the services and carers caring for them (Aarons et al., 2010; Cooper, Peterson, & Meier, 1987). This can result in frequent placement moves and failure to fully meet the young person’s needs (Newton, Litrownik, & Landsverk, 2000; Rubin, O'Reilly, Luan, & Localio, 2007). Outcomes for young people in this position are often worse than for other young people and these effects can persist into adulthood (Dregan & Gulliford, 2012; R. Jones et al., 2011; Simkiss, 2012). Evidence-based approaches such as multidimensional treatment foster care (MTFC) have been shown to be effective for some of these young people (Chamberlain, 2003); however, suitable foster provision may not be available for all of these young peopleIn 2011 Glasgow City Council (GCC) together with NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde (NHSGGC) initiated a small pilot ‘Enhanced Residential Service’ (ERS) as an intervention for this group of young people. The initial model for the programme was developed jointly by GCC and NHSGGC. The model was theoretically grounded in Social Learning Theory (SLT) and drew on existing local expertise in MTFC; however, in contrast to MTFC this intervention was to be delivered in a residential setting. The report described the findings of a brief initial evaluation of the pilot project.
