The Promise

The Promise


It’s a big thing, but we make a promise to a child when they join The Winch. We promise to act as an advocate and a supporter, to help them navigate their way through life as they grow. We commit to walking alongside them through difficult as well as mundane times and in particular at big moments in their lives, for example when they’re changing school or struggling with something.

The Promise is a way of explaining the importance and quality of our relationship with each child, parent and partner and of inviting them into our family. Research shows that long-term relationships which go beyond individuals to institutions are central to having a lasting impact, particularly in ensuring that the benefits of early intervention are sustained.
