Our Vision

“To be the provider of choice for care and education in our sectors through being trusted, empowered and vibrant”

Our Values

Trusted

We are fully committed to the young people in our care and work hard to maintain a high quality standard in all we do. We practice an open and transparent approach to the way we work in improving young peoples lives and our longstanding, positive reputation is demonstrable through the outcomes we achieve.

Empowered

We are a person centred organisation, with the individual at the core of everything we do. We will provide our staff with the tools needed to give young people a supportive and comforting environment, where they will feel safe and cared for. Supporting our managers through staff training and giving them autonomy will enable our passionate and committed employees to succeed. This culture of passion and drive will transcend through from our staff to the young people we work with, giving them the strength to influence their own positive futures. We will celebrate our successes, both internally and externally and focus on our team oriented approach.

Vibrant

We will work energetically to develop our techniques and skills to shape the way care and education is delivered within our organisation. We will exercise more creative approaches in how we deliver our services to all stakeholders and how we engage with Local Authorities in a deeper collaborative sense. We aspire to be seen as more youthful, colourful, brighter in our approach to the work we do. This mirrors the impact we wish to have on the lives of the young people we support. This is the part of our brand that can allow greater engagement with our young people, allowing them to be involved in some of the initiatives and activities we wish to develop, that leads to positive outcomes.

The very first time I visited (Hillcrest The Laurels) I felt I wanted to live there myself… In my opinion, this is one of the best children’s homes I have come across in over 10 years!

I can see from my last visit that R appeared really settled and calm which is impressive in such a short period of time…R’s mother has also provided some feedback saying how impressed she is with how the staff support R…I have nothing but positive praise to provide and Villa Farm is probably the best residential home I have worked with.
