Jasmine Mother & Child is a unique residential family centre in Plymouth, Devon. We offer specialist parenting assessments for mothers with substance abuse issues.

Our program offers treatment for mothers to address substance use while enhancing parenting skills, allowing them to remain primary caregivers for their children.
Jasmine Mother & Child recognises that for many women, the use of substances has been a mechanism for coping with traumatic life events, including childhood trauma/abuse.
.

The service is regulated by OFSTED and CQC who rated the service Good overall.

The safety and welfare of the child are paramount. While our assessments will address the support needs of the parents, the focus will remain on the child, with a view to facilitating care planning for the child’s longer-term future.
We recognise the potential therapeutic value of a residential parenting assessment and will endeavour to deliver our assessment in partnership with mother and child.

We aim to provide a safe and nurturing environment for families so that each parent has a fair assessment of their parenting skills and capacity.

We will work with a range of professionals to provide each family with individualised support in line with their abilities, needs, and background.
