Here at Wightoak, we are all about the team.

We love creating an environment where people want to work, not work because they have to. We help develop you as an individual so you can exceed your potential, so you can help our resident young people do the same.

Our culture is to ensure we pay careful attention to team needs through effective support structures, clinical supervision, training, and positive team relationships. The emotional impact of our work at Wightoak Youth is at times, considerable and it is only through high-level mutual support can we create an effective working environment for all. The therapeutic community approach is renowned for inclusive meetings, and we encourage open communication at all times. Through a collaborative culture, we are better able to support team needs which, in turn, ensures the best possible outcomes for the young people we support.
