REACH is multi-disciplinary team that provides intensive support to families with multiple complex needs, where there is a significant likelihood of the young person (aged 12-18) becoming accommodated away from home.
The multi-disciplinary approach brings together a range of professional expertise (Children's Services, Education, and NHS Tayside) into one team and allows young people to benefit from a wide range of specialist support in one place. This helps to minimise delays in getting the right help at the right time, and reduces the need for young people and families to be referred to multiple agencies.
REACH integrates care and outreach support and provides intensive, coordinated and flexible support to young people and their families within their own homes and communities. It also supports rehabilitation of young people into their family home and/or community, and aims to provide evidence based assessment and interventions that support families and young people to:
- Develop resilience
- Develop problem solving skills
- Reduce risks
- Improve overall family functioning
- Empower families
REACH operational hours are Monday- Friday from 08:00-22:00 and Saturday-Sunday 09:45-23:00. There is also a 24 hour on call service to respond out with REACH's normal operational hours.
