Our aim is to provide an individualised placement for Young People with complex needs, who may have experienced trauma, neglect and abuse and we understand that surviving this harm often
affects both internal and external worlds. These young people may have additional diagnoses of mild or moderate learning disabilities and/or autism, where it is assessed that they would benefit from the therapeutic milieu and positive behaviour support approach that Rubicon House offers.
We advocate that living and learning together, integrated with more formal treatment methods, will provide the opportunity of more healthy choices in life.
Rubicon House provides a safe, warm, nurturing and empowering environment for young people to live in. We aim to help young people achieve their full potential in relation to all aspects and dimensions of their lives including:-
• The ability to make, maintain and develop relationships
• Self-awareness, self-management and positive thinking
• A positive self-image and an enhanced self esteem
• The highest possible level of academic and vocational achievement
• A sense of personal competence and independence
We will provide a service that reflects and responds to the individual needs of each child placed at Rubicon House. We also recognise that Young People often show their difficulties in groups and that a healthy functioning group can be powerful in helping a Young Person develop social skills and abilities.
