About us

J.A.C.S Specialists Ltd (J.A.C.S) provides support to vulnerable young people aged 16 – 21 to help them gain the confidence and skills needed to live independently. We are also there to give young people the emotional and practical support needed in their day-to-day lives to help them overcome obstacles and help keep them on track. Through supporting young people in this way they are better prepared for managing their future tenancies and therefore prevent homelessness and social exclusion from mainstream community.

Jennens House Residential Family Assessment Centre will focus on the provision of robust, fair, and evidence-based assessments of parenting skills and capacity, based on the family’s individual needs, in a safe and comfortable setting.  We will ensure that our service provides the basis for securing positive outcomes for children, whilst reducing risks to their welfare and safety will remain our foremost priority. Putting children first is a core value we hold.

Work for us

People choose to work with children, young people and families for a variety of reasons. For some it offers the chance to give something back to the community or make a difference to the people around them. For others it provides an opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge. We are always looking for experienced people to join our bank staff team.

Our Vacancies


Young People are encouraged to take part in both group and individual activities which not only take account of their ethnicity, culture, language, religion, interests and abilities but also help to deepen and widen a young persons experience of diversity. For example we encourage young people to experience food, festivals and films from different cultures.

 If a young person moves into our placement and they already take part in an activity, club or hobby, we will endeavor to support them to continue this or encourage then to take up new ones based on their interests and aptitude in any particular area.
