Athena Ethos

With a dedicated and professional staff team Athena provides a complete range of services packaged for the individual needs of Local Authorities and their young people. The ethos of the organisation is to ensure that young people are provided with the quality of care they need in order to become positive members of their community and live independently successfully when they have completed their transition into adulthood.

We believe that every person is an individual. Our care programmes are therefore individually tailored to meet the needs of our young people. With our qualified and trained staff at Athena we provide a safe and secure environment where young people can develop and are supported through difficulties. We aim to give young people a sense of trust and security, so that they can realise their full potential.

Athena can operate a commercially viable and high quality service that values its staff and is completely young person focused without compromising our excellent standards and principles and we aim to become the leading name in specialist care provision for young people in supported living accommodations. Athena provides a dynamic outcome based service, committed to the promotion of the aspirations, rights and wellbeing of young people, whilst simultaneously working towards creating safer communities.

Our culture is one that promotes a sense of belonging and ownership for each and every member of staff by promoting team spirit and ultimately pass this sense of belonging on to our young people.


Young people are our priority; we encourage a sense of personal responsibility and they help set realistic goals based on high aspirations and their own individual benchmarks – taking into consideration their past experiences and level of ability and understanding. Athena are solution-orientated and pass this thought process on to the young people.

Athena have exceptionally high standards and expectations, pursuing excellence in all aspects of our service delivery and backing this up with commitment to support that is reflected in our staff retention ability.
