At Moving Up we like to think of ourselves as a little bit different to other leaving care providers. Our ethos and approach has been built up organically over the last four years.

Our foundation was originally within residential care, where we realised that there was a need to provide a quality leaving care service. In residential care we gained significant experience, working effectively with challenging behaviour, mental health issues, offending behaviour, self harming and sexual exploitation.

As we specialised in leaving care, we were able to devise systems and strategies that dealt with the stresses presented to a young person, whilst leaving care in a controlled environment.

Throughout this time we were able to tackle the institutionalised thoughts that many young people had, with a variety of proactive processes leading to successful outcomes. The final outcome being the young person was prepared for full independence.

Moving Up has learned that when providing services for young people it is important to address their individually assessed needs, as inappropriate placements can be detrimental. From experience, the founders of Moving Up understood that leaving residential care was a stressful situation and that young people would have different abilities when it came to coping with this situation.

Moving Up was set up to minimise these transitional issues with packages of support ranging from 24 hours a day, seven days a week to a couple of hours a day. We ensure that the young people we work with have the best chance of success by providing them with very good accommodation and a committed staff team to present consistent boundaries, designed to meet their differing needs. This combined with our detailed working systems ensure that all progress is evidenced thoroughly.
