Vision, Mission & Values
To reduce re-traumatisation by adopting a trauma informed approach in our policies, procedures and practice.
Place of Progress’ vision is of a society where those accessing services are treated with dignity, compassion and respect by all those they come into contact with.
The values and principles of Place of Progress are reflected through the practices of our staff so that our young people are treated with respect, understanding and support in order for them to feel empowered to achieve their objective to live independently.
Perseverance – never giving up on people
We are committed to working with children and young people who are often seen as too complex for other services, are deprived of the time and investment required to achieve positive outcomes and may have experience previous placement break downs. We know that our aims can be best met through collaboration with other agencies and foster partnerships to achieve this.
Optimism – high aspirations and expectations for all
We believe that everyone can achieve goals if afforded the right environment and opportunities and therefore set high aspirations and expectations for all of our services users, treating them with dignity and respect. Building up their skills, capabilities and positive social networks, can prevent needs increasing leading to more acute and costly services. We take individual needs and capabilities into account and tailor our support accordingly.
