Our Director of Services, our Head of Care and our House Managers create a strong Senior Management Team. Collectively, Horizons have a broad scope and experience of all aspects of caring for vulnerable children and young people.  Our Senior Management Team provides supportive leadership across Horizons Residential Care Ltd.


We pride ourselves in operating a bespoke residential childcare service providing ‘close support’ with an experienced staff team ratio of 1:1 as standard to young people with complex social, emotional and behavioural needs.   Many of our young people also have additional needs arising through disability.


The initial vision for a specialist residential service has been developed and refined to form the ‘Horizons Residential Care’ model which has been cascaded forwards to underpin service delivery within all Horizons services.  Horizons have spent time creating positive caring environments promoting nurture, growth and achievement of young people and staff alike.  Our staff teams are competent and confident in delivering care which aims to meet and exceed the National Care Standards.


Horizons understand that to achieve the SHANARRI based outcomes and make a real positive impact on the future of our young people, a 1:1 staff ratio is fundamental to ensure the needs of every individual are met. Each service is designed to meet the needs of a maximum of 3 young people.  This enables meaningful life space interventions to be sustained and progression made to deepen the positive growing experience that Horizons can provide and to support the young people to make sense of their past experiences and recognise their full potential.


It is our belief that working in partnership with professionals and families, combined with our ethos, will allow us to achieve goals and objectives for looked after children across Scotland.

 Horizons have successfully developed service provision to a sustained high standard.  This can be evidenced within our Care Inspectorate Reports.


The continued commitment, enthusiasm and professionalism from our House Teams have led to many successful outcomes for our young people and their families both past and present. 


Our thanks and recognition go to the professionals that we are currently engaged with and those that we’ve had the opportunity to work with since opening.  We have and will continue to strive to ensure that our service provision exceeds their expectations and remains dynamic to meet the needs of the young people we care for.
