The homes are situated in a variety of locations, both rural and urban within the New Forest, each located within an approximate ten-mile radius of our head office. These properties have been carefully acquired and converted to meet the safety requirements of the young people.
Each home is carefully selected to ensure adequate support can be provided quickly in emergency situations by the on call managers, whilst ensuring they are not too close together, reducing the likelihood of young people absconding from one home and attempting to round up other young people.
All home are maintained to a high standard, with good quality furniture and fixtures. The maintenance programme ensures the home comply with health and safety legislation and good practice requirements. All the homes operate above the legally required fire safety installations.
Two of the homes have been subdivided. This enables the house to be run as two distinctly separate homes (whilst maintaining the one Ofsted registration) or opened up and used as one home. This allows for greater flexibility with regards to placements that may be accepted, whilst maintaining the safety of the children already in care.
