Health and Wellbeing

Young People

It is our hope that every young person in our care, Thrives. Under the support and guidance of our Clinical Lead we use attachment, neuroscience and child development to support our young people.

We fully implement a PLACE model throughout our day to day work with the young person:

Playful, Loving, Accepting Curious and Empathy.

“Everything we do is with love in our heart…”

It is the Love that binds PACE together…that acts as our moral compass.

Seeing the young person for who they are and fitting the knowledge around what we are seeing.

Assessments are carried out on each of the young people coming into our care, to identify with their therapeutic needs and to be able to advocate on behalf of these so that we can target the interventions. Evidence suggests that when interventions are target focused, they are more effective.
