CORAL Community Assessments and Support Services is an innovative professional service that offers Community-based Multidisciplinary Assessments, which can be an alternative to residential assessments. Our programmes enable children and families to be assessed in a familiar home environment, in line with ‘good practice principles’ either prior to or during the pre-proceedings process or during care proceedings. In addition, CORAL offer Special Guardianship Assessments, Adoption Breakdown Assessments and 24-hour Family Support and Intervention Services to support children and their families, including providing cover for emergencies/out of hours/night sitting until the responsible local authority Children’s Services takes conduct of the case the following day.
