At Aberlour we work with children, young people and families who have experience of care and many who come into contact with the justice system. Through our residential children’s houses and fostering service we provide safe, nurturing and loving homes for children who cannot live with their families. We know that children in care are disproportionately more likely to come into contact with the justice system and we aim to support and protect the rights of children and young people we support who do. We also support children looked after at home and their families, including families where children are at significant risk of being taken into care. We work with families to prevent and mitigate the challenges in their lives that can create and increase risk to children’s wellbeing and welfare.
