Our Mission:

To transform the lives of children and young people who are at significant risk of harm to their wellbeing as a consequence of the environment in which they are being raised and their own complex needs.

Our services include our nationwide Stand for Children Service (which is inclusive of the therapeutic care and education component delivered in our children's villages) therapeutic social work services delivered in home based and school based settings, family therapy, and a holiday programme for caregivers, including grandparents and foster parents.

Our community and school social workers have many years of experience providing individualised support to children and families who have complex needs and family structures.
