We want to make you feel undertood and heard

Let's face it.. all adults were children and young people once upon a time and with our help, expertise and life experiences, we want to help you feel safe, heard, helped and understood. 

At The Bettermeant Group we deeply care about the welfare, wellness, healthy minds and happiness of everyone that has growing up to do.




  • simply because it is our duty to care

  • some of us had troubled childhoods

  • some of us were child-refugees 

  • some of us have children

  • some of us grew up in single-parent homes

  • some of us lost our parents as children

  • some of us grew up in care

  • some of us witnessed abuse as children.

Therefore, we make a huge promise to keep you safe and healthy. We will help you become resilient and ambitious, be happy and independent.

Be safe

When you first come into care we will help you understand why you are coming into care and make sure you have everything you need.

We will make sure you have a social worker. Your social worker will do their best to spend time with you and get to know you.

Be healthy

We will help you to be as healthy and well (mentally and physically) as you can be.

We will teach you what groups of foods are healthy, how to cook, shop, budget, exercise and lead a healthy (in mind and in body) lifestyle.

Be ambitious

We will support you with education and career, to help you achieve the best you can in your recent and future life.

Together, we will find out what career you are passionate about and we will guide you towards it. 

Be independent

We will help you to be as healthy and well (mentally and physically) as you can be

Be resilient

We will help you to feel self-confident and able to deal with life’s challenges.

We will help you to recognise and control your emotions and how to deal with important events in life.

Be happy

We will help you to be as healthy and well (mentally and physically) as you can be. Together, we will find  strategies that will deal with your past and help you to make sense of it, without blaming yourself.

Before we become responsible for your wellbeing and safeguarding, we'll ask you what is it that we can help you with and how we can help you achieve a better future.

We will offer you safety and we'll make sure you're cared for and understood.
