Forensic placements

Forensic placements and support

Magic Life offers high quality supported living accommodation for people with a forensic history. We understand the complexities of community-based support for those who have been discharged from secure settings, or who have offended in the past. Our expert team focus on promoting independence while identifying and managing risks, resulting in a community-based support model that provides a “least restrictive” alternative.

Our model of Forensic Support

Our 24 hour supported living services offer homely and supportive environments that are focussed on the individual needs and aspirations of the people we support. Supported living pathways enable us to work towards increasing independence, minimising risk and reducing support over time, with the ultimate goal of more independent living.

The support we offer is carefully tailored to each individual, allowing us to address specific offending behaviour and possible risks and implement positive behaviour support within outcome-focused timelines.

The importance of person-centred care

Our experience tells us that many people with a forensic history develop a mistrust of health and social care professionals. Our team have the experience, resilience and passion required to overcome these challenges, break down barriers and form productive and positive relationships with the people we support.

We continually assess risk and implement support plans that promote independence, while also monitoring and managing identified risks.

We work closely with local authorities and outside agencies such as forensic outreach services and probation services to ensure that the support we offer meets the needs of the individual and their history. Our close-cluster model means that all of our North-London services are in close proximity, allowing us to be extremely responsive by uplifting staff numbers when required.

Transitioning to Magiclife from a secure setting

Individuals with a forensic background may require support to make positive choices that reduce their risk of relapsing or reoffending. We work very closely with every individual, their families, their previous settings and any health professionals, to ensure that the risks are comprehensively understood to enable us to build a robust transition plan and care plan that meets their needs and manages risk.

Our Supported Living Pathways

Our services are tailored to an individual’s needs. It’s how we can most effectively encourage and empower individuals while providing all the support they need. Every individuals journey is underpinned by a comprehensive Support and Goal plan that they play an active role in defining.
