Do you believe in magic? That may sound like an unusual question, coming from us, but then we’re an unusual place. Our philosophy is straightforward: we always say 'yes' to children and families, and every time we say 'yes' we make a little bit of magic happen.
By the time we meet them, children and their families have usually heard 'no' far too many times. Too many doors have been closed to them, and they’ve entered a phase of their lives in which a lot of other people make decisions for them. So we simply never say no. And that has the power to make all the difference.
