The care team at Morton Lea work hard to provide a therapeutic and nurturing approach to the care they provide for the children. The home has a family atmosphere where the children feel safe, secure and cared for, which allows them to grow and achieve their full potential. Opportunities to strengthen and develop personal resilience are encouraged and are incorporated into daily life.
Our home welcomes children and young people aged 6-16 years old and we can facilitate a maximum of 4 boys. These numbers provide high levels of staffing and can ensure that within the home groups can be split into manageable numbers of 2-3 for small activities. This helps to accommodate the friend choices and personal preferences of the children.
We place the children and young people at the heart of all we do, from decision making through Inclusion, to planning and implementing changes and ensuring that the young people are safe, well, happy, striving for positive opportunities that will enhance their life, and meeting all their social, emotional, physical, recreational and educational needs. We access sporting activities, planned days out and a full spectrum of activities, including specific clubs out with the community to enable them to develop their social skills whilst also giving them the confidence to interact/engage with young people of similar age and have similar interests.
