Daffodil Family Centre is a national parenting assessment centre which provides focused, purposeful, time limited residential assessments. The centre enables parenting capacity to be assessed whilst the child remains in the care of the parent.

Dedicated to ensuring the best outcomes for children, Daffodil Family Centre places the child at the centre of its work with a trauma informed approach. The safety and welfare of the child is paramount. Whilst our assessment will consider and support the needs of the parents, the focus will be on the child, with a view to facilitate care planning for the child’s longer-term future.

Daffodil offers a strengths-based and psychologically informed assessment, helping parents to address the complex and often longstanding underlying issues that will have interrupted safe parenting techniques. With 24/7 supervision and monitoring, Daffodil’s multidisciplinary team supports parents to identify what changes they need to make in order to keep their child safe.

Whilst undergoing assessment, mothers are also encouraged to make use of the therapeutic services on offer at our Sunflower Women’s Centre less than a 5-minute walk away. The Sunflower Women’s Centre is also equipped with a mindfulness and wellbeing suite and a trauma informed creche, known as Sunflower Seeds, which is the base for our contact centre.

Every parent receives a fair assessment of their parenting skills and capacity and is given individualised support in line with their abilities, needs and background. Whatever the outcome of the parenting assessment, we aim to ensure that the experience of the family is one of transparent working, respectful practice and collaboration.

Located centrally in Plymouth, the centre is a short walk from many parks, resources and amenities.

Each family will receive a welcome pack upon arrival which contains basic food items, however families will be responsible for purchasing their own food for the remainder of the assessment.
