Our staff teams are with the children 24hrs a day. It is their commitment and ability to understand that behaviour is a means of communicating need, and looking beyond the behaviour in order to unleash a child’s potential, which adds to our ability to create positive, well formed outcomes.
We believe that every child is an ‘individual’ and should be given the opportunity to heal and grow in an environment based on:
Empowerment, Trust Mutual Respect, Restoring Hope, Self Belief, Play, Opportunity, Responsibility, Creativity, Openness, Understanding, Equality, Successful Outcomes
Working with children and young people can be challenging as well as rewarding. We believe and understand that:
• A positive role model means
Providing an example to young people of how to be a responsible adult, how to show affection, resolve conflicts, how to set goals and achieve them etc. By modelling responsible behaviour we will best influence how the young people we care for behave. We also look to model effective and successful practice.
• Cultural , ethnic and sexuality issues can influence working with young people
Diversity enhances a living environment. Our attitudes and actions should encourage the sharing of cultural heritage and personal diversity. This can provide young people and the adults in their lives with many opportunities for growth and understanding.
