Who we are

Wood Grove Children's Home is part of the Kedleston Group and opened in 2012.

Wood Grove creates a safe and caring environment where we provide opportunities for children and young people to achieve to their best ability.  Our home provides care, guidance and support which promotes the importance of decision making and taking ownership of those decisions.  Our therapeutic approach and systemic based work, children and young people are supported to address their feelings and emotions in a safe and supportive way.

Our home is set in a quiet residential street in Colchester, Essex and offers each young person their own bedroom and bathroom, either en-suite or next to their room.   There are spacious communal areas where the young people can share with their friends or staff in house activities.  The home is situated close to the centre of town allowing access to all the local amenities.
