Some of our children and young people will also need support to manage their behaviours and keep themselves safe. We support the children and young people to achieve their full potential, stepping into foster care, safe return home and help prepare them for independent living and further education, training, or work.
We aim to create a nurturing, family environment which encourages strong bonds between staff, children and young people and creates a setting where improving self-esteem and self-worth is a focus in all the work we do. We strongly believe that children and young people should be supported and encouraged to achieve their ambitions, and in order to do so, building self-esteem must be a priority.
Our intention is that each child/young person will achieve positive outcomes through accessing appropriate education and having their own individual plan which includes objectives and targets for areas including identity, health and wellbeing, self-care, family and positive relationships, life skills, new experiences as well as through being able to thrive, develop and grow in the supportive and therapeutic environment that Ivytree House provides. This plan is monitored, reviewed, and revised on a regular basis. Ivytree House works closely with all relevant stakeholders to ensure a consistent multi-agency approach.
