Children and Young People Support


KEYFORT began supporting 5 year old N during the COVID-19 pandemic. The full assessment and referral process was completed remotely, using technology. All meet and greets with his staff team were done online, and N’s family were able to get to know potential support workers and select a team that they believed would work effectively and feel comfortable in their family home. N now has support four times a week; he engages in sensory activities and is developing relationships with new people. KEYFORT support provides respite to N’s family and enables them to spend quality time together which hasn’t always been possible for them in the past. Every member of N’s team absolutely loves supporting him. 

We have been receiving care for our son for over a year now. The management of his case goes way beyond our expectations. Nothing is ever a problem, everything is approached in a professional manner but also not too formal. I think this approach is absolutely what you need when dealing with such personal care in the home. Regular communication and regular updates are provided through management and support staff. I feel extremely comfortable N’s Case Lead managing my sons case and give 110% trust for her to allocate support staff to N”


‘A’ is a young man who commenced his educational journey with KEYFORT in September 2023. Having disengaged from traditional education settings for nearly a year, ‘A’ required a personalised educational approach tailored to his unique needs and learning style.

KEYFORT worked closely with next of kin and the local authority to set up a bespoke package that would mean ‘A’ could start to access his education again in a way that would motivate and engage him. KEYFORT recognised the need for a specialised approach, and ‘A’ now has a dedicated and skilled support team who are instrumental in supporting with implementation of a tailored educational package for ‘A’.

Since joining KEYFORT,  ‘A’ has exceeded all expectations and showcased remarkable progress in his education journey. ‘A’ has been enjoying practising his writing skills and has enjoyed learning about the human body. ‘A’ has also enjoyed learning about measurements and numbers whilst baking. The team provide a range of more traditional classroom activities as well as sensory activities.  In addition to his academic progress, the team has been prioritising the development of essential life skills for ‘A’. Special attention is being given to daily living skills and practical knowledge, such as money management.

‘A’ currently has goals to put his new skills and knowledge into practice by accessing the local community and further afield.
