How we work with you

How we work with you and help children and young people to stay safe and well, and reach their full potential. 

We support families who need a bit of extra help to give their children a good start in life. Some children and young people are at risk of being harmed, or are not being properly looked after. We work with families to keep their children safe. Sometimes we need to arrange for children to live with other carers for a while. 

Here are some of the ways we work with you.

Our Semi Independent Living Service

Living on your own for the first time can be extremely daunting. We know this can be especially true for our young people who have grown up in the care that’s why we created our Semi Independent Living Service.

The service provides accommodation, care and tailored support to help young people leaving care aged 16 to 18 years prepare for independent living and learn valuable life skills at their own pace.
