Compass Children’s Homes give young people the opportunity to encounter normal, ordinary experiences in order to provide them with the building blocks to reach developmental milestones needed for everyday life.
Compass does not subscribe to a single theoretical or therapeutic model, but looks instead at each child and their needs. The emphasis is on individualised care and the staff to child ratio reflects this. We understand that quality relationships between the children and residential support workers are a significant feature in effecting change in children; alongside a structure of routines, clear expectations, good parenting and safe emotional and physical containment.
All of our children’s homes provide the highest quality care and substitute parenting for children who experience a range of behavioural and emotional difficulties. They are founded on the core values, experience and culture that has made Compass Community one of the most successful independent children’s services provider in the country.
We recognise the importance of investing in and retaining good support workers; offering high quality training, frequent supervision as well as specialist independent consultation. The culture is based on family values of respect, caring, education, social and leisure pursuits and good health.
These core values have enabled Compass Children’s Homes to be continually rated as ‘Outstanding’ or ‘Good’ by Ofsted. Compass however, measure success in good outcomes for the children looked after by providing a safe, caring and developmental environment for every child to achieve.
