Our mission at Pathfinder Care is to help young people achieve their full potentials and make a positive step into their future. We assist young people to develop practical, emotional, relationship, resilience and financial skills in order to achieve a successful transition from care to independent living, within a safe caring framework.
We offer a range of long term, short time, short break and emergency accommodation/ placements for Young People aged 16-25 who are Eligible, Relevant, Former relevant, and Qualifying Children.
The staff team comprises of people with proven knowledge, skills and experience to deliver viable and sustainable placements. The team reflects the diversity of the client group with considerable knowledge and experience of working with Unaccompanied Asylum Seeking Children (UASC).
The service provides a high level of support to its service users and works closely with the Young Person’s Social Workers and Advisers assigned to them by the placing authorities and facilitates communication with them for the benefit of Young People.
Ethos and Philosophy
At pathfinder Care, we belief stability is the foundation stone. Young People who experience stable placements providing quality care are more likely to succeed educationally, be in work, settle in and manage their accommodation.
With our assessment, risk management and client matching policy and framework, we ensure Young People do not represent a risk to each other and placing them together does not increase their individual vulnerability.
