Registered manager- Residential Childrens home

Posted 19 November by REED Health & Care
Our client is a family run business, creating a family home for children running through the centre. They started the business back in 2005, recognizing the need for well supported flexible housing options for care leavers who ranged from as young as sixteen and as old as eighteen. Of course nowadays, that age range can go up to 23 years and on occasion older.

They identify appropriate housing for young people and provide a needs led service through individual and specific plans. This plan is created by consultation with the young person and their Local Authority worker. It will form the basis of focused work with the young person, so that they can improve their confidence and independence skills.

They further recognize that some young people may have experienced a number of placements breakdowns and that they may have complex needs, as a result of this, we provide both support and a period of stability to allow them to mature so that they begin to take responsibility for themselves. The individual work appears to look very formal, but we attempt to make it interesting, accessible and as much fun as possible.

The company currently has 4 services for children, 2 leaving care and 2 residential homes. All homes are decorated with that family feel and are created with love and understanding for what a child is looking for in their safe haven.

Since our early years, we have developed services for children at “Osbourne House”, our 4 bedded Residential Children’s home. We have also developed a service for adults with learning difficulties. We are constantly looking for new ways to support children, young people and adults.

A truly amazing company to work for. Please contact me if you need any further information on 01512366172 or by email
