We provide care that is specific to the needs of the young people who reside with us and help them understand and learn to overcome experiences that have affected their young lives.
Our residents are often at risk of absconding or going missing, sexual and criminal exploitation, offending and anti-social behaviours, non-engagement in education, and mental health and historical trauma. In their past, they may have been subjected to and/or witnessed physical, emotional and sexual abuse, neglect and domestic violence.
The young people who are placed with us may have had numerous placement breakdowns in the past or may have recently come to the UK as an unaccompanied asylum seeker with vulnerability and fear of being abused, tortured, trafficked or even murdered. We support and encourage our young residents to be able to continue practising their religious and cultural beliefs without fear of prejudice.
Our residential services enable young people to take a step towards independence through a stimulating, energising and supportive environment, in which young people can enjoy a challenging and enjoyable introduction to adult life.
All children and young people have a person-centred care plan established within 28 days of admission, outlining their needs, areas of skills to be encouraged and developed, future goals and aspirations. The plan provides a clear structure showing how these needs and goals will be met, and who will be responsible for actioning and supporting each area.
