Huntercombe House Stockton

Huntercombe House Stockton is a homely and safe centre for young people with learning disabilities, such as autism and Asperger's syndrome. We also help young people who behave in a challenging way.

Located between the vibrant market town of Stockton-on-Tees and the village of Norton, we provide long-term and short-break support for boys and girls (up to 18 years).

Our young people get individual care and support, and they can develop their social and educational skills in a safe and secure environment at the same time.  We regularly take some of our young people for fun days out, to theme parks or the seaside.  We also organise short breaks away from the centre and we encourage our children to join in with various after school clubs.

From the start and throughout their stay, each young person is assessed on their own capabilities so that they have short and long-term goals to work towards and receive the right levels of care to help them reach their full potential.   To hear about Ben's journey during his time at Stockton, please click on the link below:

Care at Huntercombe House Stockton

Residential care

We offer short-term residential care for young people with a learning disability who need a lot of support, day in day out.

The aim is to build confidence in young people whose behavioural problems have proved a challenge in other settings and may have led to a breakdown at home and/or at school.

Short break care

Sometimes called "respite care", this is aimed at young people who live at home. When a young person with a learning disability spends some time with us, they enjoy new experiences and meet new people. Meanwhile their families get an opportunity to take a rest knowing that their loved one is receiving a high level of care and support.

Who we treat

We look after young people up to the age of 18 years with a learning disability and behaviour that is difficult to manage. Our residents may have Asperger's Syndrome or Autism.

Advice and Support

Individualised assessment and care planning

Individualised assessment and care planning is a key element for all our young people and where we can, we involve the young people and their families and carers. This way, we can evaluate the care we give effectively and work towards achieving the young person’s individual goals.

The Huntercombe House Stockton team

Centre manager Lorraine Harding is supported by a deputy manager, team leaders, senior staff and support staff, who all offer a wealth of experience and skills. We all have, or are working towards, NVQ Level 3 in the care of young people. We also have a full team of staff who keep the centre running smoothly.
