Stanley House, the first children’s care home for Pathways Residential Child Care, is located in South Derbyshire in a beautiful semi-rural location on the outskirts of Burton on Trent, and only a short drive away from the city of Derby. The property is a large four-bedded home with an enclosed garden, and plenty of comfortable communal areas for children to enjoy their time.

The management and staff team at Stanley House view each child as an individual, and each care package is therefore carefully tailored to meet the needs of each young person. Helping our children to achieve the very best possible outcomes is integral to our ethos, which is why we offer the support of a qualified in-house dance and movement therapist who works with our children to support them in dealing with trauma and challenges. In order to promote health and wellbeing, our children also have membership to Branston Golf and Country Club where they can access the gym and leisure facilities.

Stanley House and Pathways Residential Child Care Ltd. share a vision of providing meaningful care that can make a real difference to children’s lives. Our ethos, therefore, is to offer a safe, nurturing, caring, and loving family environment for children to recoverin, whilst offering consistent, non-judgmental support, and guidance, and providing professional help and support where necessary. We also know the importance of listening to the child and building their resilience, self-confidence, self-esteem, and self-efficacy.
