Our dedicated 24/7 team includes our Home Manager, Team Leaders, Therapeutic Support Workers and Night Shift Team. They work alongside our ENGLISH AS SECOND OR OTHER LANGUAGE (ESOL) language teacher and experienced, specifically trained and Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checked group of volunteers and befrienders. As an organisation and community committed to reciprocal learning we value safety, diversity, integration, resilience and transparency.
Our ethos and philosophy embody the Children’s Act 1989, the Children’s (Leaving Care) Act 2000, the Human Rights Act and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
This ensures that the right to express views, right to freedom from discrimination and inhumane treatment is upheld at all times and access to information, education and healthcare are paramount. As such, all our team and associates are required to challenge injustice and inequality in whatever form it takes. This includes consideration of their own actions and those of their work colleagues. We are committed to modelling a policy of non-violent communication, conflict resolution and personal integrity at all times.

All our team, YP and visitors are expected to respect individuals regardless of age, race, background, religion, ethnicity, gender, sexuality or disability.
In turn this will support YP to learn and develop skills to express and regulate complex emotions and solve interpersonal conflicts constructively.
We are committed to supervision, vicarious trauma protocols and involving the team in our action research and offer relevant and frequent training opportunities as part of our teams annual personal development reviews
