Utilising our strong understanding, experience, and total commitment to delivering positive outcomes, we have offered specialised provisions for high-level vulnerability and high-risk young people for over 18 years. Keeping our residents safe whilst building towards a planned move-on into independent living through engagement, participation and clear communication and boundaries outlines the key building blocks within our approach and organisation.
Through person-centred support, we empower young people to develop social, emotional and functional skills as they live in safe, secure and high-quality settings. Our young residents have the space they require to grow, enhance their self-confidence and self-esteem and develop the life skills required to live independently, whether that is for the first time or following a sudden or significant change in their personal circumstances.
In 2021, Lily Housing Project, Lily Residential Services and Lily Staffing Solutions separated into three stand-alone companies, opening our first residential children’s home in Weymouth. This exciting opportunity allows us to increase our level of provision and provide care for children from the age of 12.
To provide children and young people with an understanding, respectful and supportive environment, whilst inspiring confidence to learn, grow and achieve an independent and fulfilled life.
To be the leading provider of children’s homes and supported accommodation for young people, where residents can overcome their fears and vulnerabilities, feel a sense of belonging and reach their fullest potential upon their pathways to independence.
Our ethos is focused on developing children and young people’s independence, offering asset-based support, and working towards moving people on to live improved independent lives or back within the family home.
To successfully achieve this, we strive to meet the following commitments:
We pride ourselves on supporting young people to unlock their true potential, set bigger goals and achieve their aspirations. Every child or young person that we support is treated and respected as a valued individual. There is no ‘one size fits all’ approach within our projects and homes.
The support a young person receives is carefully planned, but most significantly, discussed and agreed too. Our residents are actively encouraged to make their own decisions about the care they receive.
We work with children and young people who:
We work with local authorities and commissioners:
We work closely with the placing authorities to put together robust care packages, support plans and risk assessments. Individually centred to the needs of the person, ensuring each child and young adult residing at Lily Services receives the help, guidance and support required to reach their fullest potential.
Lily Services operates with total commitment to each young person and child in our care. Whether ensuring a happy transition back into the family home or a successful move to your own flat, we do all we can to ensure the move-on is a success. We make clear recordings of all developments, achievements and progress made and that care-leavers have the tools to live a healthy, safe, independent life.
As part of this commitment, we continue to offer a support programme to our care leavers for a further six weeks to ensure their initial safety and development in the wider community. All recordings follow strict GDPR guidelines and will be stored following our data protection policy. This policy can be accessed upon request of the client and placing authority.
