Hillcrest meet the Five Outcomes in the following ways:
Being Healthy - All children in our care attend Doctor, Dentist, and Optician appointments. We also have links into local CAMHS teams and provide a safe, nurturing and caring home environment.
Staying Safe - Our residential homes provide a secure and safe environment where staff develop key working relationships with children focused on improving personal safety and wellbeing.
Enjoying and Achieving - All our children are given opportunities to enjoy a range of confidence building activities such as horse riding, sailing and mountain biking. They are encouraged to be members of local children's organisations such as sports clubs, guides, cubs and cadets.
Making a Positive Contribution - our children play an active part in developing their care, health and education plans.
Achieve Economic Well-being - All our children are actively encouraged to undertake further education. We also strive to prepare them for living independently in their communities, saving for their future through their individual bank accounts and developing work experience.
