OUR PHILOSOPHY

Three Pillars of Engagement

All of the work we do, from developing educational programmes to providing expert keynote speeches, is planned, designed and presented considering our philosophy based around our three pillars of engagement.

SOCIAL
IMPACT

Does this piece of work create a positive social impact?

The answer to this is of great importance to us. Any work we undertake has to have the clear purpose of making a positive impact on the lives of young people in and on the edge of care, either through direct work such as young people focused projects, or through the training and development of those working with them.

SUSTAINABILITY

Is the piece of work sustainable?

We create work that can be sustained after our initial consultancy and training so more young people can benefit, for example by developing the skills of young people as leaders of local networks or long term projects, or by building in follow up consultancy and review.

IMPROVE ENGAGEMENT

Will the piece of work improve the way young people are engaged with?

Our work at is focused on improving authentic engagement and participation. We ensure that any piece of work we carry out achieves this either through the education of professionals, or by working directly with young people who are supported to share their knowledge and insight, promote children’s rights and develop strategies to make change happen.
