Description:

No8 is an Ofsted registered Children’s home that provides long-term and short-term placements.

We are a small home that accommodates a maximum of two children.  This ensures that we are able to provide quality one to one care that meets the individual needs of our residents.

We can accommodate two young people aged between 10 and 18 years old, who may display emotional and behavioural difficulties.

We are an independent family run business.

We are looking forward to deepening our existing relationships with the Local Authorities that we currently work with, and to forging new working partnerships with other Authorities to support them in meeting their needs to safeguard children and young people.

We have an experienced Senior Management Team and a diverse workforce that is committed to meeting the individual needs of each child by providing a care package that is founded on support, values and respect for the young people.

We do not provide a full education package but we are an ASDAN Registered Centre, so we are able to top an existing education package with internally run extra courses.

We base our practice on a mindful approach and all of our employees undertake an eight-week mindfulness course as part of their induction process.
