Warmth and stability for a confident future.
We provide high-quality one, two and three-bed homes for children and young people requiring residential care on a medium to long-term basis. Placements are usually planned in detail to ensure all children’s needs are matched, but we are also able to provide emergency placements. A talented and dedicated support team care for children, providing continuity of care and a homely, safe, nurturing environment where children can thrive. Each child and young person has their own room and comforts, with the vital freedom, encouragement and support to express their thoughts and feelings. We follow a positive authoritative parenting model, where young people are helped with their daily routines, such as getting up and ready for school, going on outings and activities, as well as enjoying interests and hobbies.
The Restorative team work closely on the care plan with all referring authorities and family members, as appropriate, to ensure user-group dynamics, care team and professional partners involved can fully meet the individual needs, including cultural and religious, of each child who comes to us. Personal care plans are highly structured, and subject to consistent and collaborative review. Our aim is to help each child overcome any trauma they may have experienced and gain the confidence and capability, to work towards personal, everyday goals; each step contributing to the longer-term potential of their happy, independent future. A positive direction is maintained at all times, even in times of crisis, to help children grow in confidence and resilience.
