Our purpose-built centre is split into four smaller self-contained units to enable us to create a homely and comfortable setting for the young people staying with us. This configuration also gives us the opportunity to group our young people with others of a similar age and need. We provide long-term and short-break support for boys and girls. 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. Particular favourites include swimming at Splash, ice skating at Billingham Forum and the leisure facilities at Teeside Park.  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.

Longer-term Care

Longer-term Care

Typically young people who are staying with us longer-term have challenging behavioural problems which have caused a breakdown in home and / or school placements. We offer intensive levels of support and care to help these young people develop social and life skills. We encourage attendance at local schools, where possible.

Short -break Care

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. We can also use this time to reassess the young person and provide some practical suggestions for their ongoing care at home if requested.
