“Open Door were able to demonstrate that children, young people and their parents were at the heart of the service vision…We heard of a strong ethos and culture of needs led and outcome-based care…and young people’s participation in service design and research…There was a clear vision and sense of strategic direction led by leaders with extensive clinical knowledge and expertise…” Local commissioners were advised to “secure the longer-term funding certainty of Open Door”
