Our primary focus is about the individual needs of children and young people in our care. Our hope is that they can reflect on their time with us knowing they were valued and cared for in a nurturing and loving environment. We employ individuals who share our vision for success, creating a caring environment and great memories for young people.
Our Placement team work in close partnership with authorities in order to ensure all needs are met when placing a child or young person with us. This ensures that we can give them the best possible start in their new home as we open up new exciting opportunities to them.

Therapy As Standard
We understand that mental, emotional, and behavioural trauma in childhood can cause long term problems that may affect the health and well-being of children, families, and communities. Providing therapy to all our young people—we hope to address any issues as soon as possible. This helps to minimise problems at school, and improves their ability to form lasting friendships in the future.
Reintegrate Back Into Education
One size does not fit all, every child is different.
Our trained residential support workers and therapists work alongside the education providers to create bespoke plans for our young people.
Each young person will have varying levels of coping skills and resilience when returning to and/or moving education provider, so having an open mind about what pupils may be going through, how they will be coping with it, and what support they need is always paramount.
"Children who have experienced difficulties with education attainment have been supported by staff to re-engage with learning.
As a result, children are beginning to make good progress in their education." - OFSTED 2020
PACE Model Training
With many of our young people having experienced difficulties in early life, First Blue Healthcare is dedicated to using the fundamentals of PACE (Playfulness, Acceptance, Curiosity, Empathy) to help create a secure support structure.
With PACE, our young people can start to look at themselves and let others start to see them or get closer emotionally. In short, they can start to trust again!
