Our Theory of Change is more than a delivery model. It cuts across everything we do.

We operate a Theory of Change and strengths-based approach, enabling positive identity formation and supporting individuals to view themselves through the lens of their potential and ambitions rather than negative past experiences and stigma.

How are we different

Our commitment to fostering inclusivity and ambition for all by dismantling barriers, stigma, shame, and nurturing positive relationships and community engagement, continues to set us apart.

Our Frameworks

    We use Trauma-Informed Care and Compassion-Focused Therapy to train staff to ensure compassion, resilience and competency when working with people with multiple and interconnecting needs. We focus on the strengths and assets of each individual and understand the impact of their previous traumatic experiences, focusing on the person and their journey.

Our Guiding Models

    Person-Centred Care

    We prioritise the preferences, needs, and values of our residents and participants in our decision-making and delivery. We actively involve them in their care plans, respecting their autonomy, and considering their unique circumstances to deliver personalised and effective outcomes.

    The Biopsychosocial Model

    A holistic approach aims to provide comprehensive care that addresses the complex interplay of these factors. Acknowledging that biological factors (such as genetics and physiology), psychological factors (such as emotions and cognition), and social factors (such as family dynamics and socio-economic status) all influence health and well-being.
