Sometimes parents are, for various reasons, not able to care for their children alone; Sometimes children lose their parents or never knew them. Some children are denied their rights just to be children. These are the children we help.
We know a child should be at the heart of a secure, loving, reliable relationship with a parent or carer, who provides positive guidance, trust and support.
Our aim is to keep families together. If this is not possible, we strive to ensure that brothers and sisters grow up together, so that they can keep their own shared history and build a shared future.
All children should live in a family or a family-like environment that will support them to reach their full potential. We put the children’s needs first and help them build their confidence.
We help families create a loving and nurturing environment where children can always feel at home and belong.
We make it possible for children to live as children to feel loved, protected, and comfortable enough to build good memories.
We work to ensure that every child is able to form his or her own convictions – following beliefs, being true to cultural roots and respecting those of others.
Each child and family is part of a community. We work with partners to develop strong social support systems for children and families so they can develop, grow and learn in a positive, supportive environment.
Our aim is to enable children and empower young people to develop into adults who have the skills to take responsibility for themselves and contribute to their communities.
