Getting it Right for Every Child provides the vision and framework for our care planning, delivery and evaluation of our services. We ensure that a partnership approach to caring for young people underlies all of our practice. Our core values are underpinned by a social pedagogical approach to care, learning and development and we are committed to holding our children and young people at the heart of everything we do.
At Nether Johnstone House we provide a safe, nurturing environment where our children and young people can thrive and fulfil their potential. The voice of our children and young people is the strength of our service. Their involvement in planning and decision making helps us to design tailor made care plans, ensuring that individual needs are forefront of each plan and helps us to shape the delivery of the service they receive on a day to day basis. We believe strongly that a participative culture creates opportunities to develop resilience, confidence, builds self-esteem and enhances the way in which our children and young people view their world and their journey.
With an appreciation of the impact of trauma, the importance of attachments and the power of relationships, the team at Nether Johnstone House understands the supports and opportunities required to assist our children and young people to heal, learn and grow.
