Our mission is to create brighter futures for children and young people. We do this by providing fostering, residential and support services where children and young people can feel safe and cared for. We support them to make positive relationships which give them the confidence to succeed.
There are many reasons why a child may come into the care of social services:
- Unaccompanied asylum-seeking child
- Orphaned / no family
Sometimes the plan is for a young person to go back and live with their family, whereas in other situations it is more permanent.
Although we began as a religious organisation, we do not have any religious affiliations today. We work with children and young people from all religions, from all corners of the world, and support them to engage in their religion if they have one.

No, we are not a local authority although we do work closely with them. We are a charity and an independent fostering agency.
