Activities and facilities

Recreational, cultural and sporting activities are one of the biggest tools we use to help build self-image, self-esteem and relationships.  Children and young people in our residential homes are encouraged to participate in a variety of activities according to their interests and to help with areas of their development.

Residential activities

Both Kiln House and Forest View organise a range of activities for our residential pupils, including both on-site and off-site leisure opportunities. Regular house meetings give the young people themselves the opportunity to help develop each home’s activity plan, which can feature a broad range of pursuits including:

  • Board games
  • Using on-site sporting activities to play football, tennis and other indoor sports
  • Themed menus such as fish & chip night or beach themed evenings
  • Baking
  • Going to the on-site gym
  • Cycling
  • Horse riding
  • Gardening (including growing their own vegetables and herbs)
  • Shopping at local malls
  • Visiting local beaches on the south coast
  • Visiting local parks
  • Visiting local libraries
  • Visiting bowling alleys
  • Going to the cinema
  • Attending youth clubs and community-based activities
  • Using local swimming baths

Kiln House and Forest View both have their own transport to help young people access local amenities. The homes also make funds available for young people to participate in organised activities or community organised activities.
