Rossie - A Learning Organisation

Rossie is a learning organisation and committed to on-going improvement. We do this in many ways, and particularly through developing partnership with Universities and Colleges.


Our relationships with Universities are local, national and international. This ensures we keep our knowledge and practice current and future oriented. This enables us to have a skilled and professional workforce, delivering high quality services to our young people.

At Rossie, we undertake qualitative and quantitative research to evaluate and drive new practice initiatives. Most recently our Specialist Intervention Service has conducted research into Adverse Childhood Experiences and completed a report on their findings.

Student Placements

We offer a variety of placements to undergraduate and postgraduate students to help them gain experience of a work environment. Rossie also benefits from the fresh approaches and ideas students bring to working with young people.
