Description:

Footsteps a Path to Change have been established since 2008.  Our two registered homes are all set in their own grounds in rural and semi-rural areas.

Footsteps offer therapeutic support to children and young people with complex emotional needs. We are able to offer a wide variety of therapies.

Footsteps is registered with ASDAN & AQA and this is delivered by our staff and our Education Co-ordinator at each home, to children and young people who may have been out of school for some considerable time and who are currently unable to attend school. We are also able to offer mainstream education through our excellent relationships with all local schools and colleges.

All our homes have continually been given “Outstanding and Good” by Ofsted.
