Where the beginning is not a journey, but a pathway to a better destination.

Oikos (from the Greek) is a word infused with a great deal of meaning, hope, and promise, it has three basic meanings “Home, Family and Community” Oikos Residential Family Centres will provide a safe and supportive assessment environment for families who have had areas of concern but have the space to explore solutions and pathways identified regarding their ability to parent their child/children effectively and safely. We aim to provide assessments which are independent, child centred and detailed according to best practice and childcare legislation. We will work with families to instil hope by building on their existing and possibly hidden strengths for them to achieve their goal and identify external strengths in other partners for the greater good for all concerned.
