Journey To Independence
We are dedicated to helping young people become independent, confident individuals. Our experienced staff provide guidance and support to help each young person grow and develop their independence. We use a range of activities and programs to promote independence, such as developing problem-solving skills, teaching budgeting, and introducing hobbies and interests. We also provide our young people with outdoor activities to gain a sense of adventure. We recognise each young person's individual needs and provide a safe and nurturing environment for them to express themselves, discuss challenges, and explore new opportunities. Our ultimate goal is to ensure each young person in our care develops the independence and self-assurance to make a positive contribution to the world , through rewards and encouragement , helping them learn to regulate their emotions , and helping them to build positive relationships with others
Fun, Supportive, and Nurturing Environments
At Aspire Pathway Group, we recognize the importance of integrating fun into the support provided for young people. We create a supportive and nurturing environment that is also enjoyable and safe, often through activities like games, sports, and arts and crafts. This helps young people express themselves, build problem-solving skills, and feel happy, safe, and secure. We also strive to provide valuable learning and social opportunities through holidays, birthday celebrations, and fun days out, involving the child's family and friends wherever possible. All staff are expected to organize and participate in activities tailored to each child's individual learning and development needs, promoting their self-esteem, confidence, and opportunities to integrate into the community. We celebrate the achievements of our children, both big and small, and budget to ensure they will be able to continue activities after leaving. We make use of the home's resources and staff's skills to provide appropriate leisure and cultural activities for all of our children.
Young Person's Views
At Aspire Pathway Group, we prioritize providing quality care that is tailored to each young person's individual needs. Our experienced staff take the time to understand and involve the young person in planning and implementing their care plan, and regularly review the care provision to ensure it meets their exact needs. We hold regular house meetings, one-to-one child voice meetings, and key worker sessions to discuss their care plans and ensure that the young person feels valued, involved, and heard. We foster an open and honest environment where they can voice any concerns or queries, and encourage them to express their beliefs, religions, cultures, and ethnicities. We strive to build positive and trusting relationships with our young people, helping them to grow and reach their full potential.
Safeguarding of Young People
At Aspire Pathway Group, we take the safety and wellbeing of our young people very seriously. We have a team of qualified and experienced staff members who have each undergone rigorous background checks and training in the latest safeguarding practices, as well as recognizing indications of abuse. We also hold regular meetings and training sessions to keep our staff up-to-date on the latest safeguards.
We understand that there may be many areas that could pose a risk to young people such as social media , exploitation or going missing from placement. As a service we assess the risks of the young person prior to them arriving and throughout the placement to ensure that all necessary safeguarding measures are in place - as far as possible we ensure that the young persons views and feelings are taken into account and the care/safeguarding measures provided are catered around that.
