SHS is not a children’s service provider as we work exclusively only with 16+ and we support them to make the right choice, so we don’t:
- Control young people's freedom to come and go as they please without staff permission;
- Restrain young people;
- Constantly supervise young people on their premises;
- Make decisions for young people in terms of their health needs or control young people's medication;
- Control whether or not a young person stays away overnight.
