Providing a safe and challenging environment for children in care

Staff at the home are warm,
tactile, energetic and fun

We believe that: -

  • A child needs a friendly, warm and relaxing home which provides them with a sense of belonging
  • A child should make their room their own
  • Every child should have space to study, play and relax
  • Children are encouraged to place personal objects in communal rooms to quickly develop a sense of belonging
We have achieved these aims by furnishing Shelldene House to an extremely high standard. Shelldene House is a beautiful 19th century parsonage with large bedrooms and spacious communal areas which facilitate the work we do with the children. Large grounds allow for play and outside activities which are encouraged and facilitated by the staff. After arriving children are encouraged to choose personal furnishings with their primary carer so that their room truly becomes their own.
