We will never discriminate against a child or young person based on nationality, age, gender or sexual orientation. We will assess whether we can meet a young person’s needs before any confirmed start dates are agreed. Factors that we will always consider within this assessment are:

  • The level of need of a child and young person (maximum staffing ratio 2:1)
  • Location
  • RAG rating from current risk assessment
  • Qualifications, skills and experience of the existing staff team
