At Esland, we offer care, education, and therapeutic support to 6 to 18 year olds from diverse backgrounds who have encountered a range of adverse childhood experiences.
These experiences include complex trauma and foster placement breakdowns, as well as difficulties engaging in their education setting.

The young people we support often have mental and developmental diagnoses which impact their daily functioning.

To help a young person manage these challenges we make every interaction with them therapeutic in nature.

With our support they learn how to build positive and trusting relationships, regulate their emotions and try new and positive experiences to support their transition into adulthood.

Most importantly, we put our young people at the heart of everything we do, with the dedicated support of our talented teams, partnerships, and community relationships.

We live and breathe our values

Our purpose is to change children’s lives for the better, and we have strong values to help us achieve this.

Our values help us to be a positive influence on the young lives we strive to shape, and we look to them for guidance in any given situation.

Bold – To be confident in our decision-making and able to create new ideas and thinking.
Fun – To create fun ways to learn and care for our young people and have enjoyable experiences with our work colleagues within a safe and professional environment.
Kind – To be friendly, open, thoughtful, and respectful to our young people, their families, our co-workers, and all professionals we liaise with through our work.
Curious – To be professionally curious by asking questions and always seeking to understand behaviours.

Make a difference. Feel rewarded. Be the change

Being able to make a significant impact on someone’s life is often quoted as the number one route to happiness.

Here at Esland, we share a passion, drive, and determination to help young people we care for overcome trauma.

We want to help instil the confidence, resilience, skills, education, and qualifications they need to prepare them for their next steps into adulthood.

And we want to show them how much potential they truly have, so that they can reach for opportunities and experiences they never thought possible.

A lasting impact for a positive future

We’re also dedicated to creating a more sustainable future for generations to come. Our environmental, social and governance (ESG) commitments play a crucial role in shaping the future of social care and education.

They help enhance vulnerable young people’s quality of life and well-being and progress initiatives that boost our effectiveness, reduce our environmental impact, and create lasting, positive change.
