The Meadowstile Team
The home is currently rated good by Ofsted. The team were praised for their therapeutic approach to supporting the young people within the home. As a home we pride ourselves in having a strong approach to behaviour support meaning that we are able to avoid restraint as much as possible and only use this as a lost resort. Using this method we are able achieve good results for the young people and create very stable long term placements. We have also been praised for provide good clear communication with stake holders and for making every effort to represent the views wishes and feelings of the young people.
