The home is a 3 bed unit that supports young people with EBD issues - these young people are generally in their teenage years and can at times present behaviours that are quite challenging / aggressive in nature - so resilience to this and experience of working with such incidences will be important in this line of work.

The services as closely as possible represents a family group setting - it tries to reflect this in each shift by having a mixed gender duty team, they also have a culturally diverse staff team which aims to reflect the community in which the young people will leave after leaving care.

  • To participate in the domestic tasks throughout the home while encouraging the inclusion of the young people to do so themselves to practice self-care skills.
