Redefining Social Care for Children, Young People & Families

Our History & Mission

Pathways is one of the UK’s largest providers of Accommodation, Support, & Life Skill Services to Children, Young People, & Families. Since launching in December 2010, we have grown from being a small community-based support provider to offering an extensive variety of services on a national, all with the aim of reducing the long-term impact on the individual, families, and the Local Authority of Children & Young People being ‘Looked After’.

Working in collaboration with our partners, Pathways has consistently shown innovative and fresh styles of engaging with, supporting, and transitioning young people on into successful adult life.

Whilst maintaining our original ethos and working in line with our core values, Pathways continues to set the bench mark for other organisations within the social care industry and prides itself not only on delivering a person-centred service, but on ensuring that those accessing our services, past and present, are truly embedded within the assessment and strategic planning of our future development.

Building tangible relations with our partners, we are uniquely dynamic in our approach to social care and our long-term commitment to those in need of our services.

Core Values

Uphold Integrity

We are guided by our moral compasses, which innately know the difference between right and wrong. We never compromise our integrity. We stand for what is just and right and hold ourselves, and each other, to a high level of ethical standards.

Work Ethics Win

We always seek to recruit the best in the industry. But we also know that intelligence and experience mean nothing unless its paired with incredible effort and strong work ethics. The individuals, and teams willing to put in the extra effort, go the extra mile and be held accountable will be the ones who see their visions and dreams realised. Not only for themselves, but for the children, young people, and families they support.

Believe Impact Is Possible

We have the opportunity to create a lasting and positive impact on the children, young people, and families accessing our services, as well as the communities we are based within, and the Local Authority and other partners we work alongside. When we remain focussed and consistent, act in the best interests of the service user, persist, and uphold the ethos of the organisation, we believe anything is possible.

In Diversity There Is Strength

We believe that a diverse workforce offers a richer, more meaningful experience for the children, young people, and families we support. We encourage and embrace the unique differences throughout the organisation and meet together with a shared purpose. Equality and inclusion is built into every aspect of the organisation, offering each individual the opportunity to work in an atmosphere of respect, dignity and acceptance.

Be The Change

Change is the only constant. In a fast-moving world and a fluid industry such as social care, we must always seek to avoid being comfortable. By continuously improving, we embrace the ethos that it is far more rewarding to be the change we wish to see.

Maintain Humility

We recognise that there is no such thing as ‘Individual Success’. We are magnanimous in victory and acknowledge those that have helped to achieve the outcomes we reach. Healthy team chemistry, creativity and collaboration is critical in achieving our goals. We leave our egos at the door.

Embrace Self-Improvement

Lasting success and happiness is achieved through continuous growth and self-improvement. We are committed to continuous investment in the growth of our team members while, at the same time, require each individual to actively take responsibility for their own self-development and well-being.

Communicate Effectively

We believe that open and honest communication builds trust, which is the foundation of any relationship – whether its with each other, our partners, or the children, young people, and families we work with.
