Barford Children’s Services is a Residential service that integrates the provision of care with Education and Therapy to support Children and Young People with Emotional and Behavioural

We have five registered children’s homes and a total of 19 residential placements.  Staffing levels provide 1:1 care and 2:1 when required. All staff receive training, as required by the Children’s
Homes Regulations, with additional training and support in therapeutic interventions. Individual therapeutic work and staff consultation is carried out by qualified therapists.

Through our linked schools, the full education curriculum is offered with ASDAN and AQA. This supports young people who may have been disengaged from education and who have complex
behavioural needs.

We have established links with a number of placing authorities and work closely with other agencies, including CAMHS, LSCB, YOS and Police to ensure consistency in the individual care packages

Referrals and admissions are considered for both emergency and long-term placements, in accordance with the particular needs of the young people needing our support.

We pride ourselves on delivering a nurturing environment in all our homes. This doesn’t happen by chance. We have dedicated and experienced staff teams made up of people who truly care about
the wellbeing of everyone in our homes, and who want to achieve the very best outcomes for young people, helping them reintegrate into full time education and wider society.
