Every Child Matters
Irrespective of social background and individual circumstances, Every Child Matters. Having a team combination of over 30 years’ childcare experience, we know that every child should have their own goal framework enabling them to be successful.
Welcome Pack - Upon arrival, each of our young people receive a welcome pack including details of professional health facilities within their area that they can access regarding mental, physical, and sexual health.
Food- Our young people are provided with healthy lunch options with food and drinks available throughout the day.
Key Worker – Each young person is given a Key Worker, who is the central point of contact for the young person and their families/professionals.
Support - Each young person has the option to ask for a mentor, different from their Key Worker. A mentor can be an effective way of supporting a young person to grow their confidence and realise their innate potential.
Training - Our staff members are trained to identify safeguarding concerns regarding neglect, violence, sexual exploitation, crime, discrimination, and reporting processes.
Our Environment - With an honest and family orientated environment we aspire to encourage our young people to openly communicate with us should they have any worries.

Enjoying and Achieving
Premises - Our premises is designed to help every one of our young people achieve, not only with the courses they participate in but with the learning of skills that can be used away from the salon. Genuine, personalised recognition helps drive engagement, confidence, and a sense of belonging. We want our young people to feel a part of The Beauty Project family, and that is why we believe in positive acknowledgement throughout.
Positive Points - Through the term, our young people have the incentive to earn points through positive behaviour. Points can be transferred to either Beauty Starter Packs or a voucher of choice at the end of term. Our Beauty Packs provide the initial items to start up a small business.
Courses - All our courses are accredited which enables our young people to start up their own business in the future.
Awards - At the end of term, we like to create a small awards ceremony whereby parents and/or carers can come and watch their young people received their certificates and personal awards. By awarding our young people, we hope to inspire, reward effort, build confidence and motivate them to continue make progress.
