Ofsted Registered Children’s Homes 8-18 years

Ofsted Registered Children’s Homes for 8–18 years

Our services are as unique and diverse as the children and young people we look after.

We provide children and young people aged 8 and 18, with a safe and caring home environment in which to live and thrive.

Through detailed care planning and risk assessment we individually assess each young person’s needs. This assessment then allows us to develop a fully tailored programme of support, which allows our young people to feel settled, be safe, and achieve their agreed outcomes, aspirations and goals.

All placement plans and activity programmes are designed to provide fun and enjoyment; to challenge and to offer opportunities to grow and learn.

The children and young people in our care can expect the same things we would wish for, and we support them to become positive and valued members of their local community, and to have access to enriching and inspiring education and social opportunities.

Our young people are able to play, learn and to have fun, to feel valued and loved, to grow in self-confidence and to be happy.

Our services cover all aspects of their life and will include:

  • Providing quality care and support in Ofsted Registered Homes, which have a positive impact on their personal development.
  • Building lasting personal relationships and through these, develop a mutual respect, trust, and awareness of self-worth.
  • Teaching, regardless of their differences, to value and respect other people.
  • Encouraging and developing aspirations and hopes for the future.
