A partnership approach
We aim to provide an exceptional service for children, young people, carers and placing authorities.
We firmly believe that better lives, better opportunities and better outcomes can be achieved for looked after children and young people by working in genuine partnership with Local Authorities, collectively focussing on the following priorities:
- Child-centred philosophy
- Partnership approach
- Support for carers
- The value of education and a culture of learning, with commitment to training
- Continuous improvement
Local Authorities are reassured that by choosing Swiis they are working in partnership with a loyal, quality, well-trained and effectively-supported carer base.
We also adopt a positive policy of not seeking to recruit existing carers from Local Authorities.
“’Swiis as an organisation continues to play an important part in the lives of children and families and continues to support good outcomes for children who use the service. ”
