About The Dreadnought Centre

“We offer a non-confrontational, unconditional acceptance to the children and young people who are it’s service users. Aiming to separate the children from their behaviour and to challenge unacceptable behaviour in a non-confrontational way.

Both our staff and service users know that a child/young person can leave the project, be taken home at any time and withdraw from the work. On their initial visit to Dreadnought a young person will have this explained to them. Children and young people are not ‘sent‘ to Dreadnought, they come if they want to.

We have developed a unique approach to working with young people. This is a holistic approach using a combination of different disciplines.

Social Work: Working with young people who have identified needs and who are at risk.

Youth Work: Working with young people to help them identify their own needs and become involved in the decision that affects their lives: empowerment.

Social Education: Life skills, self image, communication with others, enhancing the self.

Community Arts: Introducing a philosophy of process work- breaking down the barriers to being creative and celebrating our own imagination and creativity.”
