Residential Care for Children & Young People
Was founded in 2008 by Collins Usada the Company Director and Amanda Charlie the Company Secretary. Together, we have more than 30years experience in the social care sector mainly around Children and Young People’s Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties and Supported Living.
We provide Residential Care placements and Supported Accommodation for young people in the community. We currently operate 4 Ofsted Registered and Regulated Children’s Residential Care Homes. We also operate several properties in Peterborough supporting young people in the Leaving Care age group with gaining valuable life and independent living skills. This includes supporting them with managing their home, their weekly money, healthcare issues, emotional and behavioural issues, education and training matters, legal matters, social matters et-cetera to ensure they build resilience to cope with life issues.We provide our services in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire. Our Supported Living services are presently based in Peterborough to ensure effective support of our young people.
Our aim is to provide good quality care and person-centred support in a therapeutic environment so that children and young people can thrive and achieve better outcomes. Our provisions are homely and well maintained so that children feel happy, safe and at home; home away from home.
Our practice is informed by the four letters: CARE
