We understand that our young people’s initial opportunities in life can be minimised by both their behavioural labelling and ‘Looked After’ status; we therefore aim to promote ‘normalisation’ within the geographical location, living and care environment within our home.  It is the aim that each young person will find stability in the homes location and reassurance in the homes supportive framework of routine, structure, and boundaries..
