The future is bright at our children's resource centres. Join us as we empower and support children and young people with complex disabilities and health care needs and inspire them to reach their full potential.

We support children and young people with complex disabilities and health care needs between the ages of five and 18 across North Yorkshire. We also help the families of the children we support through offering overnight short breaks, day care, overnight care, support in the community, holiday programmes and services available to assist carers in the evenings and weekends. 

We pride ourselves on working collectively as a team to deliver high levels of service.

Across the service, we provide an opportunity for children to socialise, develop new skills, visit different places, and experience a range of activities within the units and the community. They are enabled and encouraged to contribute to the local community, whilst building relationships with others and practice having a voice in the planning of their care and future. 

At the core of our work is the belief that children and young people deserve to receive the outstanding care and support they need to live and reach their full potential.

We work closely with families and other professionals to ensure that we have sound knowledge of the children we are caring for and are able to meet their diverse range of needs, interests and backgrounds. We focus on the strengths and positive attributes of the children to encourage the growth of self-esteem and empowerment and support them to develop to their full potential.
