Enabling young people to reach their potential

Our child-centred individualised care allows us to meet the needs of young people so that they can achieve their full potential.

Each of our Headway homes is a welcoming, safe and secure environment equipped to care for young people with varying needs. We are dedicated to helping individuals to feel comfortable, cared for and supported throughout their time with us. Our homes guide the young people in our care to make healthy choices, make positive contributions to the world around them and get the most out of life.

Young People's Views

The views of our young residents are integral to the quality of our services and the running of our individual homes. Young people's views help to inform our ethos of providing safe, stable homes with genuine, caring and compassionate staff who can create a family environment.

Our young residents are regularly encouraged to share their thoughts, feelings and opinions on Headway services through meetings, primary discussions, questionnaires and other avenues of open communication.

Enjoyment and Positive Relationships

Young people are presented with lots of opportunities to participate and benefit from activities that meet their needs, and develop and reflect their creative, intellectual, physical and social interests, and skills.

We are able to support individuals in the continuity of relationships with the important people in their lives, and understand the need to develop and maintain these in a healthy, positive way.
