We support the young people’s health needs, providing medication, attending appointments with the young people, and providing a weekly drop in with the school nurse and a monthly ADHD clinic. The young people are encouraged to take an interest in their own health needs, for example attending a smoking cessation clinic at the local pharmacy.
The young people are encouraged to choose a healthy menu, shop for food and help prepare the evening meal. There is a ‘Let’s get cooking club’ run by two care staff; the staff also provide healthy menus for parents to try at home.
The young people are offered excellent pastoral care, they are given the confidence to ask for help and are given guidance to know where to access help from external sources e.g. children’s rights director, KOOTH, Childline, domestic abuse etc.
