Our Provision Of Care

We understand the importance of providing successful placements for looked after children and a cost effective solution to local authorities.


We provide as standard a staffing ratio of 1:1 who are experienced and trained in working alongside children with complex and challenging behaviours.

As a team we are committed to ensure that every intervention provides a positive step to support our young people to develop coping mechanisms to resolve past experiences and develop life skills, self-esteem, confidence and resilience. Our interventions will incorporate family work to support sustained positive contact.

The young people within our care will be part of a positive living experience which meets and exceeds the requirements of the National Care Standards.

We will promote and uphold the rights and views of the young people and where necessary advocate on their behalf.

Our practice based interventions include, Dyadic Development Attachment, Social Pedagogy and Opportunity led Life space interventions.
