Our Way

Our mission is to provide our children in care with a deep sense of belonging, connection and self-belief. We seek to root, nourish and empower each child so that they may pursue happiness and realise their potential.

To achieve this we follow a trauma-informed, therapeutic parenting model which seeks to positively impact our children through understanding, secure attachment, high-nurture, structure and purposeful communication. We make a point to frequently communicate to our young people, an unshakeable belief in their potential and worth.

Our focus is always on cultivating meaningful, trust-based relationships between children and their carers in order to provide stability, security and a feeling of being rooted. We believe children thrive where there are high levels of trust, repeated high quality experiences and a predictable, structured daily routine.

This lays the ground work for a young person to start to develop self-belief, self-care and over time can catalyse an upward spiral of positive change. Our tribe of highly skilled and highly valued members go above and beyond to make this a reality.

Our therapeutic approach

“All you need is love”. The Beatles said it best! And it captures our evidence based therapeutic approach and practice model in its purest form.

Dr Bruce Perry puts it beautifully, “the more healthy relationships a child has, the more likely he will be to recover from trauma and thrive. Relationships are the agents of change and the most powerful therapy is human love”.

Our model draws heavily on attachment and intersubjectivity and puts love and empathic connection from highly attuned, responsive caregivers at the foundation of everything we do.

Our team of therapeutic care practitioners, trained and supervised by our Clinical Psychologist, skillfully employ Dyadic Developmental Parenting principles (PACE, co-regulation, affective-reflective dialogue) to create everyday, loving (therapeutic) moments. This is what supports our children to flourish and achieve life-changing outcomes.

“Preventative strategies, underpinned by the therapeutic model of care, are working…” (Ofsted Report, 2024)

We are looking for soulful, high-energy, team players committed to making a difference.
