We recognise that each child and young person is a unique, developing individual whose best interests must be paramount.
We will listen to children and young people, attempt to understand their perspectives, opinions and feelings and acknowledge their right to privacy and dignity.
In recognising that the child/young person is part of a family, we will endeavour to ensure that the needs of all members of the family are taken into consideration. We strive to create a place where there is always time and someone to listen.
We see death as part of life's journey and aim to provide the best possible practical care and emotional support at this time.
We will endeavour to provide a caring environment with a welcoming atmosphere in which we recognise the importance of quality of life for each family.
We will work together with the child or young person, and his or her family, to provide a supportive environment where we will also respect and care for each other.
