All our services and how we engage in our work, is guided by Social Pedagogical Principles. Social Pedagogy is based on humanistic values stressing human dignity, mutual respect, trust, unconditional appreciation and equality. It is underpinned by a fundamental concept of children, young people and adults as equal human beings with rich and extraordinary potential and considers them competent, resourceful and active agents.

Our organisation and its services are of a size that allows a sense of connectedness and familiarity between its people, and this is reflected in our model of care and philosophy, which truly values the importance of relationships and respect. This allows for a qualitative sense of purpose within the lived everyday experience for adults and Young People alike.
