High performance is expected at all times from members of staff, who are expected to adhere to high standards of personal integrity. Unfortunately, we recognise that of this is not the case then we have a clear system in place to rectify this and take appropriate action to ensure that we learn from this and where required action will be taken against the staff.

After Care Package
We provide an After Care Package that will be offered two months before the placement ends and will be specific to the support required for that young person. This is to provide a continuum of care and to ensure that the transition is achieved smoothly.
