At Mappleton Lodge, we care for very challenging young people who have emotional, social and behavioural difficulties as a result of past emotional/ sexual or physical trauma. Although the home can accommodate up to 6 young people, it is split over three properties in one large gated site. Mappleton Lodge accommodates young people with a range of behaviours, the staff have expertise in caring for young people with self-harm issues, young people who present with sexually harmful behaviour, anger and aggression and who are vulnerable to child sexual exploitation or exploitation in general.
The staff team all have training in self-harm, missing from care, child sexual exploitation, sexually harmful behaviour, attachment and behaviour management including physical management of young people. Due to the needs of the young people who are admitted to Mappleton Lodge, we also offer a psychological assessment which will be carried out and additional counselling/therapy which can be put into place where required.
We aim to create an environment where guidance, boundaries and positive role models are provided. There is a well-structured, consistent, robust and planned parenting approach to enable us to achieve this.
