Commissioning & Costs

Our aim is to offer our services at competitive rates, whilst taking into consideration the wealth of experience, skills, knowledge and expertise our team brings to every level of our service delivery. Our work is mainly funded through delegated funding for SEND and pupil premium, social care, LA commissioning and the post adoption support fund.

 

LOCAL AUTHORITIES

Our psychological formulation and therapeutic repair work is charged at £90 per hour plus travel time (£45/hour) and travel expenses (45p/mile). In addition to our psychological formulation, we are happy to offer a more timely and responsive service to family and professional needs. For example, solely a review and analysis of the case file followed by a consultation with the referring professional (e.g. social worker) or the professional team around the child to formulate a revised therapeutic repair plan or next steps.
