The Organisation:

As one of few child centred organisations that use attachment trauma-informed care as their base, they ensure that the children are at the centre of all they do. By re-investing in the children, the children gain a better understanding as to the why’s, what’s and how’s leading them into fulfilling their potential and going on to lead an extraordinary life. Delivering the highest quality of service to the children and staff, the organisation is going from strength to strength and over the past 30 years has made a real difference to children’s lives by helping to turn them around.
