Clovelly House is a unique residential children’s home in the Leicestershire countryside about 9 miles from Leicester. The home is a dormer bungalow set in half an acre of well-stocked grounds with an on-site school and therapeutic provision. The children at the home are educated on-site and have an integrated package of care and education provided by Clovelly House and Clovelly House School.

The home takes up to three children of mixed gender from 10-18 years. We are registered as an SEMH home, but our specialism is working with children with high levels of stress and anxiety, which manifests as self-harm and other mental health difficulties. In addition to this, our children may also have other complex needs.

Clovelly House is an exceptional home. This is a home where children and adults feel a genuine sense of belonging. We do not consider ourselves as a residential children’s home, but rather as a home where children belong and where we all feel part of the family.

We provide a therapeutic environment so that children can learn to trust and to redress some of the difficulties that they have experienced in their earlier lives. We work using a model of mind-mindfulness, PACE and DDP, led by our psychotherapist and we have an embedded therapeutic approach.

We do that by providing a countryside environment, a large comfortable home, nurturing and positive attitudes, enhanced experiences and on-site wrap-around provision including high quality education and therapy.
