ABOUT CHOICES HOME FOR CHILDREN

ABOUT US

Choices was formed over 25 years ago and have successfully help challenged young people to move onto independent life, whether back to their families or into the community for a productive role in society.  We hope to have given these young people a nurturing and therapeutic approach to life, working with authorities, health service colleagues and experts to achieve this.

We provide residential care for short-, medium- or long-term periods and can also take emergency placements while the young person is waiting for assessment.

The childcare teams in each of our homes are trained in the PACE model and practice a therapeutic approach when looking after young people.  Staff and young people are supported by our phycologist and individual care plans are discussed with them to help with positive outcomes when dealing with the challenges they face in everyday life.

We have a robust and continuous training scheme for staff development, using online and external training courses, this is supported by regular supervision meetings to assess progress and attainment.  Our highly motivated and caring staff work with our young people to prepare them for every opportunity to enrich their lives.

We want to give young people a strong sense of personal worth and attainment and help them believe in themselves and to make positive changes to their life.  To take responsibility for their actions within an environment with people that understand them and their difficult challenges.

We offer our young people activities and life skills such as shopping, cooking, menu planning for budgeting when they are independent. We also support activities and hobbies outside the home such as fishing, camping, horse riding, sports, and fitness to ensure that our young people have full lives once they leave us. Please visit our young persons page to see what they say about us and the activities they like.

Read Our Mission

We want to provide a new outlook on life and what the future holds by working with our young people, their families, and others.

We want our young people to have freedom of thought and emotions in a therapeutic setting that protects and nurtures them.

We will treat every young person with respect and support them through their journey to independence or back to their family.
