Supporting the well-being of those in our care at every opportunity, with a POSITIVE approach to life and work that promotes a healthy lifestyle, and endless opportunities for development.  Being prepared to take appropriate positive risks to enable each individual to reach their potential.


We will create OPPORTUNITY for all who live and work in the Community to reach their full potential.


We embed TRANSPARENCY within our professional model of practice and funding, we actively encourage good transparent governance and standards in our community, seeking continuous improvement.


In realising the EQUALITY and uniqueness of each individual, we go beyond appreciating the abilities of those in our care and understanding the developmental challenges they face, to recognising their unique individuality and contribution.


Creating and sustaining a natural environment, we aim that each member of our community can grow and develop through NATURE, which supports their development and well-being by its restoring effect.


We are committed to create a THERAPEUTIC and holistic environment characterised by connecting to the natural rhythms to advance health, education and well-being of all.


We champion INCLUSIVITY in all we do and create an inclusive diverse environment in which each member of the community is accepted and appreciated and feels protected, safe and secure. We are also committed to engaging with the wider community to promote cultural opportunities and innovative projects.


We attach importance to accountability and hold ourselves individually and collectively accountable for everything we speak, and do. Especially for the quality of life offered to the children, young people and adults we carry the responsibility for.
