Beach House is a five bedroomed semi-detached house, close to all amenities and leisure facilities which has been specifically adapted to suit the needs of a children’s home, for the accommodation of five young people of both sex between the ages of 7 and 17 years old on admission. The accommodation is decorated to a high standard, which is conducive to providing a friendly and homely atmosphere.
The home has five young people’s bedrooms with two family bathrooms. We recognize the importance of the need for both companionship and privacy. We have one large lounge, which is aesthetically pleasing and comfortable. The kitchen is fully fitted, with all the modern appliances. The home has an open plan Lounge/dining area where the young people can benefit from the family experiences that are had when eating a meal or relaxing in front of the TV. There is also an additional snug for the young people to relax in. Downstairs there is a staff office/sleep in room and also a manager’s office.
The young people are encouraged to have some input into the continued maintaining of the home We believe in involving all of the young people with any project that is to be completed within the home. The rationale behind this is to give a sense of belonging and commitment to the home.
Each of the young person’s bedrooms is spacious and we encourage all those who come and live with us to bring their own personal possessions so as to make their bedroom feel their own and we encourage this through personalisation upon arrival where each young person is given a room budget, this is to promote the young people taking ownership of their surroundings.
The home has an enclosed garden and parking.
