Common Thread


Case Studies


At Common Thread we believe in creating a healing, therapeutic environment where the child is firmly at the centre of everything we do.  Common Thread takes a holistic approach to supporting children and young people within the living space.  We operate at all times within our strong value base, which is driven by putting children and young people first.

We understand that every child has a right to services, which are appropriate to their individual needs.  We work collaboratively with multi-agency partners to ensure the best possible care and attention is delivered to every child and young person entrusted into our care, and that it is delivered in line with their identified care plans.

All case studies depict a real Common Thread story. The name of the young people involved has been changed to protect their identity.
