We are also close to a Go Karting race track which the young people to love to go.
At Chestnut rise we empower our young people by working with them to build their self confidence and esteem. We work tirelessly with our young people and actively involve them in decision making by allowing them to make informed choices. Our home prides itself in managing young people with Emotional and Behavioural Difficulty, CSE issues, identity and cultural difficulties as well as young people that are gang affiliated. Chestnut Rise is an environment where staff create a warm, caring and homely environment but will set boundaries that all young people are expected to follow. Every child is treated as an individual taking into consideration that their needs and personality are different. However, the child is at the centre of our practice and their wishes are feelings are always taken into consideration.
We believe that young peoples voices must be heard and therefore we ensure that we empower them to speak up but we will also advocate on their behalf when the need arises. Young people come to Chestnut Rise and find a safety net in our place where they call “Home”
