Brook House had a great end to 2019 by receiving a GOOD rating from our Ofsted inspection.
The home has achieved lots of good outcomes for the children we support, by always having their best interests at the centre of everything we do.
One of our children at the end of last year was chosen out of a hundred children to trial in the Midlands for the under 16s Ireland international rugby team. He successfully passed through to the second set of trials that took place on the 3rd January 2020 in Leeds.
This is a massive achievement as he has competed against players who have been playing rugby for a lot longer than he has, with the players trialing coming from all over England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales and from other countries.
Our young man has only been playing rugby since living at Brook House and when he moved in said he “ would like to give it a go.”
It just goes to show what can be achieved with the right support when you put your mind to it, no matter what your circumstances.
Well done from everyone at New Horizons (NW).
