OUR MISSION
Our mission is to be recognised as the leading provider of specialist residential care for people with Asperger Syndrome in the South West of England. 

To achieve our mission we believe:

That a good residential home can make a significant difference to a resident’s personal, health and social development. That our residents will learn best in a secure, stable and predictable environment, with sufficient structure to promote personal security, while allowing the space to grow, to make mistakes and learn from experiences. It is important to have transparent systems and opportunities for our residents to contribute to decisions about the running of the home, as well as having individual sessions with them to ensure that they are consulted about their individual plans, which involves their parents, where appropriate, and other people who are important to the residents, within these processes.

That everything which is done for, and with, the residents should be directed towards achieving the declared outcomes for the person concerned and all aspects of such provision should be of the highest possible standard. In creating opportunities for our residents to express and develop their individual identity, in accordance with their welfare, safety and protection. That every person is an individual, that behaviour can change for the better, and that no one is beyond help.
