Medium to Long Term Care
We offer medium and or long-term care and stability children & young people with a wide range of complex needs.
16+ / Transitional
A vital part of our work is to assist older children make a successful transition to young adulthood. Historically, structured care has to often stopped abruptly at the age of 16 and the child or young person becomes an isolated young adult virtually overnight and is unprepared and therefore unable to cope with their new circumstances. Our transitional programs assist older children to become more self-sufficient by giving a semi-independent life within care in order to develop life management skills before leaving. This process is often started within the home in which they live and continued in our independent Leaving Care Project.
Education
Education is an area where many of our children have experienced difficulties and frustration. Where requested by a placing authority, and with their support we are able to develop by utilising the skills of specially trained teachers, an appropriate educational path - often on a 1-1 basis - which leaves children enthusiastic about learning.
Special Activities
We aim to offer children opportunities that challenge, inspire and educate. These activities can take many forms including outdoor, team-oriented pursuits, cultural events, practical exposure to a variety of career possibilities, multi-cultural learning and more. The aim is to allow children to enjoy happy, healthy and valued lives.
