Social Work Organisation in Kent

Our mission is to create a culture where children and young people are enabled to thrive and fulfil their potentials. We aim to create a society in which children's voices are heard, valued, and their ambitions realised.

Our mission, with our supported independent living in Kent, is to support children and young people in recognising and achieving their potential. At The Bliss Homes, we believe that children and young people, irrespective of their circumstances or journey in life, merit the chance to shine. 






Our organization 

As an organisation, we are people-oriented and put our young people at the centre of our services. We understand that transition and change can be a scary and uncertain process for many young people and want to make this transition as smooth as possible for them.

Our organisation strives to provide quality and equal services to all clients regardless of age, gender and ethnicity, among other individual demographics. Vulnerability is not limited to a certain group and we as an organisation understand this.

We understand that the transition into needing support services can also be difficult for some young children. As an organisation, we ensure that we support this transition, while maintaining each young person's independence, dignity, and self-autonomy in our intervention. We provide person-centered, strength-based and service user-oriented intervention with all our clients, to ensure long term success rates.

As a social work organisation in Kent, we aim to provide a child-centered service which holistically includes the voice of the child and has the child at the centre of the service. Change is never an easy phenomenon and can be even more daunting in a child or young person's life. Our goal is to ensure that, where we provide our services to these vulnerable children, they do not feel different and are able to express their feelings and opinions freely about their needs. The staff within our organisation have had years of experience working with children and young people who understand that transition from living at home to living in supported accommodation must be eased into.

At the Bliss homes, we ensure that feedback given from our service users and their family are adequately taken on board and worked upon. We want to ensure that the quality of life and living of all our service users is of the highest standard.

Organisational structure


The Bliss Homes management is limited to a modest structure, as the establishment is growing and we, therefore, remain a close working unit. We have planned our strategy to ensure that we use experience and competence to ensure that we build our reputation to a very high standard, as we aim to be a force in the care industry and known for quality service provision by dedicated staff at all levels.

Support workers

Our pool of support workers provides advice and support to young people between the ages of 16-21, in our social work organisation in Kent, on living skills, education, employment, and training, which are customized to meet individual needs, following an initial assessment. They carry out advocacy services and provide welfare benefits advice and other services. They also work as motivators, mentees and guidance, which will help in the development of talent they want to develop and build on.
