About us

The way we do things around here

Paving the way to achieving our ultimate vision of outstanding practice in everything we do, we have developed a shared understanding of the core values that underpin our work and culture. Together we've explored the unique complexities of working with children, young people and their families and emerged with the following distillation of our collective ideas and opinions.

We are proud to stand by these values because they clearly describe 'the way we do things around here'. No grey areas, no uncertainties – these truths will guide us all. Helping us do the right things, in the right way, for the right reasons.

"We will be guided everyday by the values we have committed to, the values we have co-created, that shape the way we do things around here"

Ian Thomas - Strategic Director C&YPS

Our values come to life in the way we behave towards our service users, our partners and our colleagues. They affect the way we carry out our work and in the way we share our knowledge and experiences. By committing to the values we have set together, we will make real progress for the benefit of everyone who needs us. Putting children at the heart of everything we do.
