Clare White aged 16

Residential records


Clare became looked after when she was aged 13 following a breakdown in her relationship with her father who has longstanding problems with alcohol misuse. Clare's mother died when she was 10 and there are no extended family members with whom she could live. Clare was initially placed with foster carers, but found this difficult and after three months asked to move to a residential home, where she settled well.

Based on this information what the key areas that should be covered in the residential unit file on Clare? For example, dates of any absences from the unit.
