The Phoenix Group was established in 2006, by a small group of like-minded individuals with a real passion for providing excellent services to those in need.

The Phoenix Group is all about working with young people and young adults to meet their individual social or educational needs across the South, The Midlands and Wales.

We do this in various service settings, always trying to put the young person at the centre of our thinking and practice. Our aim is to improve the individual’s skills and abilities to allow them to be more effective, productive and valued members of society.

We operate a number of children’s homes for young people unable to live at home and for whom a foster family is not suitable or is an aspiration.

The main aim of our children’s homes is to:-

  • assist the young person to work through the crisis,
  • develop the skills and abilities needed to move on, either back home, into foster care or independence.

The group also has specialist children’s homes, where the young people have similar specific needs and the staff are trained and committed to working in that dedicated area.

There are two schools operated by the group, providing alternative education for 8 to 16 year olds, who cannot maintain a placement in a main stream education setting.  Both schools offer a broad curriculum roughly following the national curriculum
