Our Team

We are a small team dedicated to nurturing the most vulnerable children and young people in our society.

Everyone is dedicated to enabling all of the children in the group’s care to thrive and achieve in a safe environment, whatever traumas they have already suffered in life and whatever challenges they may face in the future.
