Shilus is a provider of high-quality, independent Social Assessments to assess against a range of assessment domains, including:
- Long-term guardianship applications;
- Third-party guardianship applications;
- Carer reviews or suitability assessments;
- Risk of ongoing or potential for harm
- Parenting; and
Our assessments are conducted using a framework and process that is child-centred. By drawing information from a range of sources, including interviews, case reviews, observations and review of other pertinent information, we are able to identify key themes for exploration and discussion. We take into account the child/ren’s developmental needs, but also the environmental considerations and demands, and the carer’s strengths and challenges.
When conducting our Social Assessments, we work within a risk assessment framework which weighs strengths and possibilities against risk factors and potential for harm.
