Calcot Cottage (incorporating Yew Tree Cottage), The Dingles, Joleen House, and Pondview specify an age range of 5 to 18 but the greatest consideration is given to appropriately aged children and young people sharing the community.
Our 16+ Supported Living Service accepts referrals for young people aged 16 and above.

We would anticipate meeting the needs of those children and young people with emotional and/or behavioural difficulties within a structured therapeutic community approach underpinned by the psychodynamic model and backed up by professional care planning and practice.

Children and young people may be admitted on an emergency basis where the criteria have been met, sufficient information provided, and the impact on the other residents has been assessed. Whenever possible, young people living at the unit will be consulted regarding new admission.
