Specialist placements for children and young people with high needs

Updated: 17 July 2015

What's Important To Us

All children and young people need a home that can provide for their safety and wellbeing. Some children and young people in our care have been exposed to a number of care situations because they have not been able to meet their complex needs. We are committed to providing care that has the strength and capability to manage the complexity of care required by some of our children and young people.
