Therapeutic Provision: Yes
Other Services: Therapy is offered to parents and family. Post placement outreach service is available for up to 3 years. We are a therapeutic residential Children’s Home service founded on theories of Attachment and Trauma.
Our aim is to facilitate children to either resume living with their families or enter long-term foster care by resolving emotional and behavioural challenges that currently prevent this. As a result, children, and their families, receive intensive therapeutic work alongside care for the children. We have in-home therapists 3-4 days each week to support this.
While children do not leave until they are ready, it is hoped that this will be achieved in 12 to 15 months. We follow up with up to 3 years’ of therapeutic outreach support after placement to sustain their subsequent placement.
