Residents are referred to us by Children's Services or as directed by the Court. During their placement, Residents are encouraged to recognise and effectively reduce risks and threats. The aim is to assist them to learn how to maintain socially and legally acceptable standards of behaviour, so that they can resume independent living in the future.
