Professional Services

Ty Caredig is designed to care for children or young people between the ages of 7 and 17, of all genders, who require medium to long-term placements in our residential homes and ages 16 to 22 at our supported living accommodation. 


We provide care and protection to children and young people who are experiencing social, emotional, or behavioural challenges and are displaying challenging, difficult, or aggressive behaviours. These can be triggered by a range of life events and/or conditions, such as physical, emotional, or medical problems.  In order to do this, we will focus on putting a therapeutic emphasis to the care we provide. We do this by working with specially trained           psychologists/counsellors. 


The philosophy underpinning the work which we will undertake is to empower and enable individual children and young people to make choices within a safe, proactive environment facilitating exploration of their growing awareness of themselves and their place in society. We will work in partnership with children, young people, and their families to enable children to come to terms with their current and past life experiences, build confidence and self-esteem within the safety of a residential care environment, and provide a platform for them to live safely in a community. This will enable them to reach their best potential and prepare them for the future.


We promote choice, dignity, and respect for all children and young people in our care, as well as the need for them to be respected members of society. The safety, welfare, and positive esteem for each individual shall be at the heart of all decisions, interventions, and interactions.
