The service provides young people with a continuum of support to maximise their full potential.

We will encourage active engagement, enthusiasm and improved motivation so that the young people and families we support are enabled to improve their life skills, behaviour, emotional well being and achievement through access to a wide range of educational and social opportunities.

Staff within the service, have agreed a mission, values and principles statement to which all have agreed as a basis for the work they do.
