Description : Hopscotch Care Ltd operates 2 homes: Carnforth (Lancashire) has a 4-bed home and a single occupancy annex nearby and Carlisle (Cumbria) which accommodates up to 5 young people experiencing emotional and behavioural challenges. Additional support is provided by independent therapeutic services, CPA, who carry out SDQ analysis and support the development of therapeutic plans for young people, which we believe has contributed significantly to a reduction in incidence of self-harm and missing from home incidents. Staff are trained in and have experience of working with young people at risk of CSE.

Hopscotch has a track record in successfully engaging young people in a range of educational activities and we a focus on well planned transition. The location of both homes enables access to numerous local sports clubs, and leisure activities, both are also within easy reach of the outdoor benefits of the Lake District.

We endeavour to keep at the forefront of best practice and are currently piloting various models of progress monitoring, in order to ensure that the requirements of the new Quality Standards are met.

Hopscotch now have the ClearCare database software throughout the company.
