We take time to understand the contexts where violence and exploitation happen and are committed to embedding contextual safeguarding approaches. We understand that all the children, young people and families that access our services are likely to have experienced trauma and use our understanding of these experiences as the building blocks of support. Our work is shaped by the identities and experiences of those we work alongside.

In everything we do we:

  • prioritise creating safe and trusted relationships
  • celebrate and build on strengths
  • involve young people in the shaping of our services and provide a platform for their voices to be heard
  • innovate, reflect, and commit to learning, we will hold our hands up when we get things wrong.
  • recognise we can’t know it all and support other professionals when another trusting relationship already exists.
