The residential family centre pre-admission risk assessment is an important step in determining the suitability of a particular family for assessment at the centre. The pre-admission risk assessment aims to identify any potential risks associated with admission, including environmental, physical and psychological factors. The assessment can help ensure that each family is placed in a safe and supportive environment by assessing the family’s current circumstances and predicting potential risk factors before admission.

The pre-admission risk assessment is an effective tool for considering a new admission’s impact on existing families in placement and allows your team to make adjustments before admission.

The pre-admission impact risk assessment template includes text prompts to help you consider the risk factors in placing the family and how you will mitigate risks for them and others.
