Our values

A child’s welfare, wellbeing and sense of safety are central to their care.

We believe that children are entitled to grow up in a caring and loving environment that can meet their emotional and physical development needs. Every child should be valued as an individual and supported in order to develop their identity, confidence and self-esteem.

We have a strong belief that, by working together as a team, and with other agencies and professionals, we can make a positive contribution to providing opportunities for children and young people to heal and repair, to maximise their potential and to lead fulfilling lives.

Every Child Matters.

Our core aim is to provide safe, high quality foster care placements for children and young people that value, support and encourage them to grow and develop as individuals in line with the five Every Child Matters outcomes:

  • Be Healthy
  • Stay Safe
  • Enjoy and Achieve
  • Make a Positive Contribution
  • Achieve Economic Wellbeing

We recognise our foster carers as valued colleagues and are committed to building strong working relationships them and providing a high level of support in recognition of the essential role they play in children’s lives.
