We support vulnerable children, young people and adults, keeping them safe and improving their life chances.
Our approach is not just to help people to tackle the issues and circumstances they face but to raise their aspirations and expectations and help them plan a better life.
Working flexibly and tailoring our support around the needs of the individual, and their family our focus is on helping them to overcome the challenges they face and always to achieve the best outcomes possible.
We do this by:
- Being open, honest and realistic and building relationships based on trust
- Treating people as individuals, not judging them or viewing them as a set of problems
- Enabling individuals’ voices to be heard, respected and acted on
- Starting with where each person is now, not where they ‘ought to be’, taking time to understand their story
- Challenging individuals to raise their aspirations and expectations for themselves and their families, while at the same time not pushing them in a particular direction
- Helping individuals and their families to make their own decisions by giving unbiased advice and guidance.
- High quality and professional residential and fostering care for children and young people
- Support for young people facing barriers to transition successfully into adulthood
- Universal and targeted services supporting young people into education, employment and training
- Support for young offenders and those at risk of offending along with services for adult offenders and ex-offenders in prison, ‘through the gate’ and in the community.
