Working with other agencies we run a number of services to provide support to vulnerable and challenging children and young people.

Why are our services important?

  • We work to improve the social skills and life chances of children and young people.
  • We support parents by working alongside them and giving practical assistance.
  • Our emphasis is early intervention and nipping difficulties in the bud.
  • Children and young people who we work with grow in self esteem and self confidence and gain more positive values about what learning can do for them.
