Are there any young people that you would not work with?
It is difficult to think of a situation where we wouldn’t work with a young person. We risk assess all of our delivery so we may have to broker in additional staffing if a young person had a history of violent or sexual aggression. We would never place any other young person at any risk. If you have a particularly challenging young person please ring us to discuss.

All our programmes are tailored to individual requirements so please contact us to discuss. One thing you can be assured of is value for money and a total commitment to ensuring that significant progress is made. We can deliver group work for as low as £35 per day per young person and individual sessions starting at £25 per hour. Significant discount are available on specific programmes. All of our pricing will be agreed prior to commencement of work and will deliver excellent value for money.
