Vision, Mission and Values
Our VISION is to be Here For Young People.
We believe that all young people should be able to access the highest quality sexual and mental health support in a safe and welcoming environment.
Our MISSION is to maintain and develop accessible, flexible and specialist services.
We aim to respond to the psychological, sexual and social needs and challenges of young people under 25 years old.
Compassion: We provide a welcoming and non-judgemental environment for young people to access support that helps them live healthy and fulfilled lives.
Inclusion: We strive to remove barriers to access, and to use our expertise to provide services that our young people can trust to be safe and to meet their individual needs.
Respect: We serve our diverse community, and work with our partners, with a willingness to collaborate, adapt, and recognise the importance of choice.
Based in the heart of our local community, Brandon Centre offers a comfortable, welcoming, and non-institutional setting for young people to access sexual and mental health services.
Our self-referral system means that all young people can access the confidential care and support provided by our friendly and highly skilled team.
Our contraceptive and sexual health service has gained a reputation for working effectively with young people from deprived and disadvantaged backgrounds, and at risk of unwanted pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases.
In fact, Brandon Centre was one of the first local organisations for young people to pioneer routine screening and treatment for chlamydia, and today, the contraceptive and sexual health service supports over 2,000 young people each year.
Our innovative approach applies psychotherapeutic principles to devise and implement mental health services, and we partner with schools, youth offending services and advice agencies to engage and reach out to high priority groups of young people.
As well as individual therapeutic help for young people, we also offer effective intervention for families of young people in serious trouble with the law, and for parents struggling to bring up a teenager whose behaviour is out-of-control.
Our approach combines leading-edge service delivery with audit, research, and the rigorous evaluation of outcomes.
This has further enhanced our reputation as an accessible and collaborative provider of sexual and mental health support to young people under 25, helping them to overcome difficulties and become healthy and fulfilled young adults.
