The Willows provides care and accommodation for a maximum of 3 young people with Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties, including but not exclusively mild to moderate learning disabilities, Child Sexual Exploitation risk factors, sexualised behaviours, non-compliance with education, self-harm, aggression and young people engaging in pro-criminal behaviours.
At The Willows we focus on the young person’s experience in the home. We offer a happy, homely, safe, nurturing and stimulating environment for all the young people to help them aspire to and achieve their full potential. We aim to support young people to develop and maximise their independence and social skills whilst having the opportunity to reflect on their past, learn to develop self-coping and regulation strategies and remain safe.
We provide highly personalised care to help young people feel safe and positive. We have a staff team who are motivated, passionate and committed to working with young people and pursuing the best outcome for each child.
We want young people to have a place which offers them a unique experience where issues and concerns which have affected them can be addressed positively and where they can progress to new heights. The young people placed at The Willows are assessed on their individual needs and the support given is tailored to their need as no two young people are alike. This may be in their educational learning, socialising, or emotional needs.
Working together with each young person, those significant to them and other professionals we endeavour to enhance each young person’s level of self-esteem by creating and maximising safe opportunities in which they learn, develop and achieve. We believe that to make life long changes we have to give young people the tools and support which enable them to move forward into adulthood.
