Tigers Hall Farm is a fantastic three bed children’s home, situated in a rural location in Kent.
The home is situated on grounds with stables and fields. It has a large lounge, a kitchen diner, a ‘Den room’, three bedrooms – one of which is en-suite, and lots of features consistent with a farmhouse, including an aga and large windows.
The home has a large cottage style garden, with a large grass area, trees, shrubs and natural borders filled with plants.
The young people currently at Tigers Hall Farm receive 1:1 care from a dedicated staff team – some of the staff have been at the home since it opened in 2019.

Tigers Hall Team
The staff team undertake a programme of training to meet the needs of their young people, which includes first aid, medication training, and attachment training, to help them understand how to provide the best quality of care to the young people.
The staff team are fantastic at gaining children’s and young people’s views, wishes and feelings, by engaging them in meaningful key working sessions, and by holding house meetings or children’s meetings to discuss topics such as home developments, activities, food choices and thoughts about the care they receive.
Some activities that the young people engage in include shopping, trips to theme parks, local parks, walks in the local countryside, clubs linked to school, and activities based at the home like game nights, themed cooking nights, and movie nights.
The staff team build good links with families and where appropriate, support and facilitate contact with parents, grandparents, siblings – sometimes this involves trips to other parts of the country!
Local authorities place young people at Tigers Hall Farm who may benefit from a more rural location, which can reduce the chance of risk-taking behaviours, including missing from care episodes or CSE risks.
