The staff team will work hard to ensure that the following ethos and values are an integral part of life at Clouds Children’s Care: The staff will use a peerson centred approach and will concentrate on the individual viewing problems. The problems will not be seen as defining the young person and will not be the absolute focus of all our attention. Emphasis will be on:
Our homes work within a Non-Violent Resistance (NVR) therapeutic framework, supported by attachment theory, raising our presence as care givers in the process.
From walking through our doors, young people are greeted by a warm, smiley, caring team, ready to help them through any confusion and turmoil.
Staff are selected through a vigorous assessment process, involving of the young people at the final stage. The majority of new recruits are already experienced and qualified.
Parents are encouraged to be involved by the completion of the “Parent Plan”. Every little helps us to help others.
We take the initial Local Authority Care Plan and aim to create a masterpiece, reaching above and beyond expectations. The young people are totally involved.
We bring a creative approach to behaviour management, every approach is personalised to the individual, no model is the same.
Taking place regularly with young people, these highly productive sessions assist and inform decisions they may make in the future.
New recruits with limited qualifications and experience go through an intensive training programme and robust probationary period.
