Rossie is a registered Scottish charity, dating back to 1857, located on the east coast of Scotland, and one of the UK’s longest established providers of children’s services.
We are licensed by Scottish Ministers and regulated by the Care and Education Inspectorates, and the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC). Governance and strategic direction rest with our Board of Governors, who operate in a voluntary capacity, and discharge all responsibilities through the Chief Executive Officer and Senior Leadership and Management Team. We are a learning organisation and are committed to ongoing development, improvement and innovation. We have won multiple national awards and aspire to be a Centre of Excellence that Changes Lives. Our aim is to protect and improve the wellbeing of young people in our care, maximising their potential and resilience and easing their transition back into their communities.
We work with young people, boys and girls, aged 10-18 years old, who have been exposed to multiple adverse childhood experiences resulting in many complex needs and vulnerabilities. We understand that when children are exposed to adverse and stressful life events these can have a long-lasting impact on their ability to think, learn, develop, and interact with others. We help young people deal with these traumatic events by providing age appropriate and relevant care, education, health, and therapeutic interventions. We also commission independent advocacy and participation services for our young people.
