Care-experienced young people in the Liverpool City Region have told us a great deal about what needs to change in order for residential care homes to be great places to grow up.
Their insights, coupled with the ethos of Social Pedagogy and Trauma Informed Practice, have helped create a set of values which guide our strategy, our practice and our culture.
“Everything I have ever done wrong is on a piece of paper. Everything I’ve ever done right isn’t.”
Jack, 15. Juno Young Leader
Children growing up in residential care in Liverpool City Region find brilliant, local homes where they feel safe, supported and loved.
Children's emotional, physical, spiritual and educational needs are fully met by a strong, loving tribe of skilled adults around them.
Residential care is no longer seen as “the last resort” option for children who can’t live with their families, but as a great, effective choice for some children.
To bring our vision to life, Juno is creating a network of high-quality, not-for-profit homes that transform opportunities for children growing up in the care system.
We will disrupt existing models of residential care that are not serving the children they support and develop homes across Liverpool City Region that improve outcomes and reduce profiteering in the sector.
Starting in Wirral, we’ll go on to open ten homes in Sefton, Halton, Knowsley, St Helens and Liverpool over the next five years, sharing our learning as we go to influence how others care for our children.

We are real
We genuinely care about each other
We don’t overcomplicate things and we don’t have big egos
We’re open and honest about what is and isn’t working – and do something about it
We bring joy:
We’re committed to making sure children experience delight and happiness
We celebrate success and achievement
We have fun while we get things done
We are one team:
We know that complex situations can’t be tackled by one person, so we build great relationships where everyone can use their skills
We share decision-making where we can
We’re not afraid of hard work; we’ll put the hard graft in
We do it as equals:
We listen well and we are kind to each other
We focus on what people can do, not what they can’t
We learn, grow and develop together
