.A safe and supported place to learn
.A great environment in which to develop and grow, and
.An excellent standard of complete support, designed for and with young people

We strive to be: 

Inclusive - welcoming all young people irrespective of faith, gender, sexuality, background
Ambitious - seeking the best outcomes for all the young people we work with
 Inspiring - so all young people we are in contact with will want to work with us

 Honest - in all our dealings with, and on behalf of, young people
Empowering - helping young people set their own goals and achieve them
 Committed to sustainability - and best environmental business practice
