PAM Assessments -
Professional Parenting Assessments Throughout London
Parenting assessments are used to determine whether parents or prospective carers have the capacity to meet the needs of children under their care. These assessments are sometimes required by local authorities when the well-being of a child is called into question. At other times, these assessments are used to inform and determine whether a child’s potential new carer will be able to provide appropriate care.
PAM Assessments accurately assess parenting capacity and compiles this data into a detailed report which can presented in court as evidence of adequate parenting capabilities or the lack thereof.
We offer two main types of assessments 一 viability and PAMS assessments.
Viability Assessments: Faster, more preliminary evaluations of parenting capabilities.
PAMS Assessments: Take longer to complete but provide more in-depth insight into a parent’s skills, abilities, areas of potential improvement and the capacity to make the necessary changes.
If you are unsure which one of these assessments would best suit your needs, please contact us for a free initial phone consultation on 07905406712. Please note that we only work with local authorities and lawyers in the London area.

A report based on the findings of the assessment will detail strengths and weaknesses of the parent as well as whether a full parenting assessment or special guardianship report will be needed.|
