Our aim

It is our aim to create a safe, secure and independent living environment where our young adults have a sense of belonging within their group and a sense of ownership for their home. We wish to enable young people to develop the confidence and skills they need for the next stage of their lives.

With a dedicated team of staff, we aim to provide every young person with an individually tailored programme of education, care, work experience, leisure and life skills and training within the community, enabling them to live as independently as possible and make their own life choices.

Cost Information
Local authorities, social services, education departments and health departments are responsible for referring young people into our schools and colleges and also for paying their school fees. Parents have a right to be involved in the arrangement of provision. Our transparent pricing structures ensure that fees are matched to the service needs of the individual and are reviewed annually in response to any changes. Guaranteed fee reductions ensure that as children and young people progress and become more independent, their fees will reduce accordingly. For more details on our fees please contact us directly to discuss how we can meet your needs.
