Staff and Service Development


Orb8 believes that all traumatised, hard to reach and marginalised children, young people and young adults deserve the highest quality and excellence in service provision delivered by agencies and staff with a good understanding of the client group, skilful in engaging with them with sufficient support to tolerate the emotional impact which can be a significant aspect of this work. We always work with professional and caring adults in respect of specific referrals but in addition to this seek to work with other organisations and service providers to encourage development and service excellence.

Receiving a service

All our work is delivered by highly experienced and qualified professionals with a particular interest and additional training in areas such as trauma, attachment and neurodevelopment.

We can offer one of interventions or provision but endeavour to establish ongoing working relationships with organisations and agencies to facilitate long term and sustained service development and excellence.

Orb8 is a business and we have no public or other funding we therefore have to charge for our services. We have standard hourly charges based on profession and offer packages of input at pre-agreed competitive rates.

Most of our Clinicians are based in the South East, South Coast, London, Home Counties and East Anglia. It may be possible to provide assessments or service development outside of this area, please ring us to discuss.
