Residential Care for Young People

We aim to provide a homely environment for young people who cannot live at home. We work together to make our homes nice places to live, where young people feel safe and well cared for, where they are listened to and helped to prepare for the best possible start to adult life.

Our Homes

We have 6 homes in the Belfast area. Two short term and four long term. Our short term homes will be most young peoples initial experience of our homes. It is a space to help young people, their families and social workers to decide where their needs are best met. After a short stay some young people return to their families, foster carers, or move to our long term homes.

Our homes offer between 6-8 places for young people mainly between the ages 12 17 years old. They are located in different areas within Belfast and as far as possible we aim to place young people in accommodation that meets their needs and wishes.

Every young person has his or her own room within a homely environment, where we aim to replicate as closely as possible a warm and family setting.

Each home has a unique culture where staff have links with other professionals and have developed particular expertise to provide support to young people. Examples are:

Making positive relationships with young people and their families.
Working with young people who display challenging behaviours.
Working with young people who have a learning disability.
Working through substance misuse or mental health issues.
