Welcome to juno.
What we do:
We’re here to bring change for children living in residential care: to create children’s homes that stimulate heads, warm hearts, and hold the hands of the young people they are there for.
Why we do it:
We believe that every young person has something amazing to bring to the world, and we want to support them to do what they’re passionate about, to have confidence, and to take the lead in their own life. We want to surround them with the love, joy and encouragement of people who are truly rooting for them, to help them grow into the incredible adults they can be.
Where we're going:
How we do it:
We listen well and are kind to each other.
We focus on what people can do, not what they can’t.
We learn, grow and develop together.
We genuinely care about each other.
We don’t overcomplicate things.
We’re open and honest about what is and isn’t working.
We share responsibilities and decision-making wherever we can.
We’re not afraid of putting in hard graft.
We know we can’t do it all alone, so we build great relationships where everyone can use their skills.
We make sure every child experiences delight and happiness.
We celebrate success.
We have a lot of fun while we get things done.
We’re supported by Capacity
Capacity is a social business that works with brilliant organisations in the North West of England and Wales to seed effective ideas, build thriving organisations and redefine what public services can achieve for people living in the UK. Capacity has worked with LCR Local Authorities to co-design this new model of care, develop the business plans and secure investment to get the project up and running. Capacity will work closely with Juno as it develops, to share learning and with ‘back office’ support to make sure that Juno is the best it can be.
