LILY RESIDENTIAL SERVICES
Lily Residential Services are very proud to be registering our first three children’s homes in Dorset, autumn 2021. We are opening two homes in Weymouth and one in Poole. Our homes are small provisions, able to house two children each, aged 12-17 years.
We provide full-time staff with specialist skills to meet the individual needs of the children in our care. With a nurturing and person-centred approach, we enable children with the ability to continue learning and developing life skills with the aim of facilitating a safe phased return to the family home.
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:
Understanding and valuing our roles and responsibilities within our projects and our homes and of those we work with from other organisations. Avoiding blaming others and being prepared to be adaptable, stepping up when needed to support young people and the wider team. Actively promoting Lily Services’ ethos to the wider community and key stakeholders in a professional manner.
Valuing different points of view and opinions. Accepting that we all make mistakes and understanding how we learn from them and move on that is important. Learning from both success and mistakes to ensure the high standards of Lily Services are maintained, whilst also improving and developing as professionals.
Regarding and treating residents and colleagues as we would wish to be treated. Accepting, promoting and upholding the rights of others who have different beliefs and backgrounds. Respecting the aims and ethos of the organisation to achieve the best outcomes for children and young people.
Communicating clearly, concisely, and professionally with all stakeholders in planning and developing the services provided by Lily Services. Working collaboratively as part of a team in maintaining and taking forward the ambitions of the project; and understanding the strength in working together to break down the barriers between those who use the services and those who provide them.
