Our Mission, Vision and Values

Our Mission

Making homes to nurture children and young people’s potential.

Carolina House Trust works to the highest standards with children and young people
to create homely nurturing environments where they are helped to grow, develop
and achieve their individual potential. This can be in a family setting, in a group
living situation or in their own tenancies.

Our Vision

Our vision is that all children and young people irrespective of their background can grow up to be the best they can be.

We do this by;

– Believing that where children and young people who can’t live at home have
as good an alternative as we can provide.

– Giving children and young people a voice and hearing it.

– Promoting individual potential where education is a keystone.

– Recruiting the most family orientated and loving foster carers and supported
carers who can offer a secure base to children.

– Offering group care that is as homely as possible.

– Creating and sustaining services to young people where they can learn to live

– Offering services to young parents that promote family unity.

– Remembering that fun is our favourite “F” word.
