At Ivy Lodge, we provide care for up to 6 children & young people of either sex. The normal admission age is between 8 and 17 years, including sibling groups. children & young people outside of this age range may be considered subject to matching considerations.
On the upper floors we have 8 bedrooms, some of which have en suites and two of which are for care staff. Children & young people are encouraged to make bedrooms their own by choosing bedding, decoration, posters, pictures, books and adding their personal possessions.
There is a community centre and range of youth clubs within a short walk from the home. There are good transport links with bus routes and a railway station supporting links to larger towns nearby.
The local towns provide a more extensive range of opportunities for children & young people to access. These include schools, colleges and libraries, and a broad range of arts and leisure facilities to support and encourage individual interests.
The home is in a rural area where the children & young people can access the nature reserve and enjoy the local wildlife alongside outdoor activity centres and farms.
