Family Childcare is a 5 bed Children's Home which specialises in providing the best possible care for children and young people who have emotional and behavioural difficulties and complex needs between the ages of 10 and 18. They may have experienced trauma and placement breakdowns and may be on the periphery of or involved in criminal and anti-social behaviour. We will support and encourage them to participate in alternative activities of daily living, utilising non-discriminatory practices.
We believe that it is imperative for the Children and young people to be able to develop the independent skills that are required to progress in their lives, which would include encouraging and supporting them to make positive changes in their life. We aim to show the young people that they can achieve in life, leading positive lives and living positive futures
Family Childcare acknowledges that Children and Young People in care frequently feel disempowered by decisions made regarding their lives; however, our approach is to ensure that each individual is empowered to make positive choices. We aim to work in partnership with all children and young people, although decisions may need to be made for their best interests, which they may not agree with. We believe that children and young people should be at the heart of their care and the home implements a policy of regular consultation with the young people through residents meetings, key work sessions, consultation forms and discussions with the young people on their care and the running of their home. The home believes in the importance of the voice of the child being heard and respected.
The home is a three storey Victorian home with a basement games room. The home consists of the following:
The home has been adapted to be appropriate for use as a children's home with regular health and safety checks and annual health and safety and fire risk assessments taking place to ensure that the home is suitable and appropriate for the young people and any appropriate changes made. The home is also suitably decorated and furnished for the needs of a children's home.
