Our Vision, Mission and Values

We’re serious about our responsibility to the vulnerable children, young people and adults we educate and care for. That’s why our vision, mission and values are so important to us. They’re at the heart of our culture, and we live and breathe them every day.


Our Vision

This is our aspirational statement – a rallying call that declares what we want to be. Its what we want everyone in the Outcomes First Group family to feel when they get out of bed each morning.

We will build incredible futures by empowering vulnerable children, young people and adults in the UK to be happy and make their way in the world.

Our vision emphasises how we try to help all vulnerable children, young people and adults – those in our care and others too – through our influence, size and scale.

Most importantly, its about helping each individual to be happy, encouraging them to understand their place in society and empowering them to work out how theyre going to make their way in the world. While we cant physically do this for them, we can and do act as guides to their futures.

Our Mission

In line with our vision, our mission outlines how we aim to turn our statement of intent into reality. It embodies who we are and what we do.

We exist to improve the lives of those we educate and look after, their families and communities through a relentless focus on learning and caring.

Our mission makes clear that we dont only support children, young people and adults by assisting with their education and care, but also their families and the communities in which they live.
