The Provider

This provider is owned and Directed by a Children’s Nurse who has created caring, friendly and stable homes for the children they support. Established 7 years ago this provider initially focussed their services for young people with mental health problems and challenging behaviour.  They have grown steadily and always kept their homes small with some home’s singular occupied.  They focus on providing resilient, creative and a holistic approach to keep the young person at the centre of what they do.  As an organisation they focus on raising self-esteem and confidence and ensuring every individual has self-worth and belief in themselves.  This comes from employing wonderful teams who support and encourage our young people and offer a positive role model to them.

The owner of the business has a very personable and friendly approach, she would love to continue growing the business whilst maintaining their all-important values of being caring and supportive for both her staff teams and the children they support.  When the owner started her career in nursing she did so because she saw it as a vocation, an opportunity to change people’s lives, for the better.
