We are a Community centred organisation that acts with Integrity and Authenticity. We value Leadership and pursue Excellence. We have Ambition for our Young People and Enable our Foster Carers.
We were set up in 2008 specifically to cater for young people who needed a higher level of support. Our carers are committed to helping these young people and we work to support them to provide the best possible care.
As part of the Caldecott Foundation, an organisation with 100 years of experience helping the most vulnerable children in the UK, we have a huge amount of resources to call upon and we believe that this make us unique in the sector.
We believe that every young person in their own way is very unique. Consequently all young people have individual needs and differing life experiences.
Because of this belief we aim to provide all young people with the very best Foster placements. The Foster Carers we work with will in turn provide young people with a stable and consistent experience of family life.
As an agency we endeavour to provide individual packages of support for all the children and young people who are being looked after by our Foster Carers.
Our aims are to:
- Provide children and young people foster care placements that offer secure and consistent family life experience.
- Ensure that as an agency we promote and respect the racial, cultural, religious and linguistic background of every child or young person and that this is considered when making placement choices.
- Ensure that as an agency we promote the gender, sexuality and disability of each child or young person and that this is considered when making placement choices.
- Ensure that as an agency when we recruit Foster Carers we accept them from a diverse background so as to help us make sure that we find the most appropriate family placement for each child or young person.
- Ensure our work is child-centred and that we follow the principals of “Every Child Matters” by focusing on the five key outcomes for all our children and young people - Be healthy, Stay safe, Enjoy and achieve, Make a positive contribution and Achieve economic well-being
