We are registered by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to support both children and adults and have extensive experience in supporting young people through their transition from childhood to adulthood and between children and adult services. Staff are trained in supporting children and young people in areas such as:

  • Building skills in social & home settings
  • Friendships & relationships
  • Maintaining and creating new networks of support
  • Social media

At the core of our organisational values is our emphasis on personalised support, nurturing and developing the interests of the people we support and working towards individual outcomes. These specific values are instilled within our staff teams and in our overall service delivery especially when working with children and young people. We encourage everyone who uses our services to reach their potential in terms of education, emotional, physical health and wellbeing, social inclusion and financial security. Support plans and risk assessments are undertaken with the understanding that they must be open to regular review, as the persons choices and decisions change.

We are experienced in managing family communications and reactions to risky/unwise decisions made by young people and developing their greater knowledge of risk, balanced against the safeguarding aspects of their care; promoting the advantages of positive risk in order that the young person can have the opportunity to challenge themselves and their decision making.

Abbeys Care has clear organisational values which staff uphold when delivering support. This includes showing dignity and respect and providing, compassionate, thoughtful, and high-quality care always. We operate a stringent safe, and values-led recruitment process followed by consistent staff monitoring. In line with the Children’s Act 2004, we make staff aware that safeguarding children is everybody’s responsibility, reinforced through members of skills for care and in-house training including MAPPA training and staff policies.  As the young person takes their journey into adulthood, we ensure that we put the right support in place for the young person and their family, to enable them to positively embrace their future.
