Wood Grove children’s home is registered with Ofsted to provide care and support for up to four children and young people aged between 11 and 18 years who have social, emotional and behavioural problems. The staff team specialise in working with traumatised young people who may have attachment or personality disorders. The home can also support children and young people who have learning difficulties such as mild autism, Asperger’s, ADHD and dyslexia. You can read our Statement of Purpose here.
The care team offers social care, guidance and support that promotes independence and delivers the skills needed for young people as they journey in to adulthood. Using a nurturing approach ensures young people are supported to address their feelings and emotions in a safe and secure way. Our intention is that each young person will achieve positive outcomes in their personal, social and learning lives and achieve their full potential.

Most of the children and young people who come to Wood Grove require a 52 week residential placement but we can also offer short term placements.
The young people at Wood Grove access and participate in education off site, either at a local school or with a further education provision. They can travel independently, or be supported to attend education, depending on age and individual need. Each young person has an individualised plan to support their emotional, physical, and medical needs.
