About New Forest Care


New Forest Care has a non-exclusion policy for children (up to the age of 18) where no placements are terminated by us.

The therapeutic and treatment model which underpins all of our work is an attachment model.

We strongly believe that through positive role modelling and the therapeutic ‘parenting’ provided by the team, the young people in our care are able to fully experience appropriate attachments.

These relationships empower young people to build (possibly for the first time) a trusting relationship which impacts on all areas of their development and future progress.

The services offered by New Forest Care are very unique within the residential, mental health, or educational child care fields. We build our bespoke services around the needs of the child and do not attempt to get a ‘one size fits all’ approach.

We believe that through appropriate assessment, daily treatment plans, and education delivered by the highly experienced, committed and qualified teams of therapeutic parenting specialists, exceptional, positive outcomes for these young people became the ‘norm’.

New Forest Care is committed to ensuring that diversity is celebrated and valued, while discrimination (whether direct or indirect) and disadvantage is continually challenged.  Due regard will be given to a young person’s particular needs, arising from their heritage, culture, or linguistic backgrounds. Staff will aim to meet these needs positively, with sensitivity.

We care passionately about the health, welfare and education of all the young people placed with us and seek to reduce inequalities they may face through our practice.  We aim to evidence clear, positive and measurable outcomes for all young people in our care, ensuring best value for Placing Authorities.

A Non-Exclusion Policy

New Forest Care has a non-exclusion policy in regard to children (up to the age of 16 years if accommodated under s.20 or 18 years if on a Full Care Order) placed in our care.

This means that once we have accepted a placement we will not terminate that placement.
