Hollydene Children’s Home provides a safe, stable and nurturing home, catering for the needs of children and young people of either gender with a Learning Disability, Autistic Spectrum Disorder and Sensory Impairment. In consultation with local authorities, we provide long-term residential care.

Specifically, we work with a broad range of complex needs, which include:

  • Autistic Spectrum conditions
  • Moderate or severe learning difficulty
  • Global developmental delays
  • Sensory Impairment
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Specific language/communication difficulty
  • Foetal Alcohol Syndrome

We can provide placements for children and young people ages 5-17 in accordance with the experience and qualifications of our staff team and providing the young people are suitably matched to be in placement together. Our placements are planned, reviewed and monitored according to the individual needs, ages and functioning ages of the young people residing at Hollydene.

Our aim is to empower people to live a fulfilling life using person centred approaches built on respect, innovation and sustainability. To respond to the changing needs of disabled people through dedication and continuous improvement, supporting more people to feel safe and to express themselves. We ensure children and young people with learning disability have the necessary skills, confidence and support to access opportunities to lead happy adult lives living as independently as possible.

To achieve good health and emotional wellbeing and to create an atmosphere within which the individual can feel safe to express themselves, find adults they feel able to approach and those that will accept them unreservedly as individuals. As part of a wider strategy, active attempts are made to rescue the better aspect of the individual’s behaviour, to restart the natural process of growth and development, and equip them with the necessary skills to go on to be productive as possible as they enter adult hood.

The home has its own driveway and a private lane at the side of the house for parking.
