Our Logo

Our logo was informed by the children and young people in our care. We asked them what made Harmeny special, and what reminds them of Harmeny the most. They told us about the burn on our estate, the trees and hills that make up the landscape and, most importantly, they told us that Harmeny is where they felt safe and at home.

Watch the video below to see these ideas come to life.
