Description:

Specialising in working with the most vulnerable and challenging children, we are dedicated to providing a happy, safe and secure environment for our young people to develop and grow.

With clearly defined boundaries set out for the children in a nurturing manner, our staff team is committed to working with the unconscious processes taking place within this child group, secure in the knowledge they have the capacity to contain the powerful emotions which can lead to a child’s challenging behaviour.

The staff team at the home possess a shared, natural understanding of the residential task.  The importance of children needing to regress and giving the opportunity for them to receive basic primary experiences is at the heart of the work we do. Our hope is the work we do will enable the children to recover from their past negative experiences and hopefully move on from us, whether to family placements or independence with a feeling of being genuinely cared for and thought about.

While we recognise that for many children, growing up in a family environment is the best outcome, we also recognise that for some children this is not possible and in this respect, long-term residential care is a preferred option. The foundation of our work is based on social learning, in which we believe children re-learn appropriate behaviour through positive role modelling.

We offer 52 week care placements primarily for children between the ages of 8 and 18 years.
