At Talocher Granary Children’s Home we offer a small 1:1 therapeutic living environment with up to 2 young people aged 10-17 years with more complex social, emotional and behavioural additional needs. We offer a cosy, homely environment with additional extras such as tennis/basketball and football courts to keep our young people active.
We are located on the same grounds as our school and larger home which allows us to maintain high levels of communication with the educational and care team.
We offer tailored/bespoke care packages to cater for the young person’s needs, always consulting and ensuring the young people make decisions on their daily care. We take all steps to ensure that the young people experience the highest levels of care and education with a team of highly skilled and experienced staff who access continuous professional development, to be able to support to the best standard.
The team seek to make positive memories, build positive relationships and gain positive outcomes for all young people placed in our care, ensuring SMART targets are set according to age, development, capability and ensuring that even the small positive steps are celebrated and rewarded.
Once settled into Talocher young people have the option to move across to the larger home, allowing them to develop their social skills in a group living environment.
The home is able to offer high levels of staffing, is equipped to accommodate both males and females who require that extra bit of nurturing. We put a heavy emphasis on transition, both in and out of our provision, ensuring young people are taught vital life skills to help them progress and develop. We conduct weekly team meetings where all aspects of the homes are discussed in a group forum along with key worker sessions where young people can have valuable time with their key worker to raise any concerns they might have.
Recently the home has had successes with several young people, where they have moved out of care or on to foster placements. We will always continue to strive for greatness with the practice and service that we provide. The home has clear boundaries and rules that are discussed with young people and also offers compromise where young people challenge in an appropriate manner.
We seek to give all young people equal opportunities and put heavy emphasis on activities, ensuring the young people’s worlds are opened up to new experiences. The young people in our home are the heart of our home; they will always be listened to, supported and assisted to reach their goals and develop.
