Every Child Matters

Committed to Exceptional Outcomes

Being Healthy

Healthy bodies and minds are essential for children and young people during their development and, for that reason; health promotion is a key area of our care practice and delivery. Our Registered Manager works closely with the staff team to ensure that our young people have detailed, regularly updated health action plans that meet their individual needs. Nutritionally balanced menus, comprehensive activity planners and regular physical / psychological assessments are implemented throughout our services, and productive relationships exist between the organisation, local health professionals and the area LAC team. All carers receive on-going training in areas of sexual health and as well as bespoke programmes specific to the health requirements of their individual child .Emotional and mental health needs are carefully assessed and therapeutic intervention is arranged wherever and whenever necessary.

Staying Safe

Keeping children and young people safe from physical and emotional danger is a major feature of our philosophy. Individual strategies are included in each child’s placement plan which, alongside carefully considered risk assessments, provides our carers with clear and concise guidelines when working with vulnerable children and young people. All employees across the organisation benefit from regular, comprehensive training and our detailed policies on safeguarding children, health and safety, complaints procedures, anti-bullying, internet safety and behaviour management serve to ensure that our homes and schools are safe, secure and free from discrimination and bullying.

Enjoying and Achieving

A sound education should be rewarding, enjoyable and carefully structured if individuals are to reach their full potential. Children and young people placed with JECH have their learning needs carefully assessed on a regular basis and their personal education plans carefully implemented to ensure their best possible outcomes. Our carers ensure that homework, internet access and extracurricular activity is fully supported, and communication with education staff is maintained at a level consistent with that of proactive parents.

Making a Positive Contribution

In order to function well in any society, we need to feel that we belong, contribute to its development and relate to others that share it. At JECH, we value the positive contributions our children and young people make, and actively encourage them to be part of all decision making processes that affect their lives and environment. Regular and varied consultation opportunities are provided, and all carers are trained to communicate effectively and sensitively. Becoming involved in the wider community is encouraged and voluntary or charitable opportunities are identified and appropriately supported.

Achieving Economic Wellbeing

Achieving Economic Wellbeing
Financial stability is a quintessential ingredient of a quality lifestyle. All children and young people placed with JECH are provided with comfortable living environments that are financially sound and fulfil the many expectations of 21st Century living. In respect of their preparation for independent living, each child has an individual pathway plan implemented from the age of fourteen that is stringently followed by care staff to ensure they are equipped with the life skills necessary to thrive and prosper as young adults.
