What Young Foundations Can Offer:
Young Foundations was the recipient of the prestigious Laing Buisson ‘Innovation In Care Award 2018’ and 'Children's Services Award 2020', and is fully committed to the provision of exceptional learning and development opportunities for all of its employees: including training in attachment disorder, neurology, development and mental health and well-being.
Young Foundations believe that the professionalism and expertise of our frontline staff should be recognised, by allowing them to achieve a credible level of nationally recognised qualification while they work. With this in mind, 2018 saw the launch of the Foundation Degree sponsorship programme in partnership with Glyndwr University, Wales. This programme allows the part funding of Young Foundations employees, to follow University programmes of work based education, that will lead to FdA and later BA (Honours) qualifications in Therapeutic Childcare.
About Valley House
Valley House is a service for children and young people whose complex mental health needs might have required them to stay in hospital in the past, or rendered them “difficult to place”.
Our emphasis is on relationship based practice in a therapeutic environment, supported by both our Consultant Psychiatrist and in-house Clinical Psychologist.
