Our expert approach

Southside’s unique methodology centres on a clear community focus, and the results of this approach are consistently impressive. We train, support and supervise local people to help others in their communities: 80% of our staff and volunteers live in the communities within which they work.

From a professional perspective, our theoretical approach combines community development, a perspective on parenting described as ecological, psychodynamic thinking, attachment theory and cognitive behaviour techniques.

Southside is part of a wider network that helps safeguard children and vulnerable adults, supporting those involved to live happier lives. We work with individuals, their families and other organisations and professionals, so that people can rebuild positive relationships. Southside is easy to reach, easy to engage with and ‘down to earth’.
