During these difficult times our dedicated teams are working around the clock to continue looking after our young people. To facilitate social distancing, our office based support staff will be working from home wherever possible and can be contacted using the numbers on our Contact Us page. We are still reviewing all referrals, offering placements where relevant, and planning for young people to move into our homes where it is safe to do so. Despite the challenges we all face during these testing times, we are committed to supporting you and our young people.
We are delighted to announce that Dove Cottage, one of our Bedford homes, has been judged "Outstanding" in its recent Ofsted inspection.
One of the comments made was that Dove Cottage feels as close to a home as the inspector had ever seen before from a children’s home, with a family feel and so many little touches that make it a great home. It is sometimes difficult to quantify some of these small touches, which is what makes it increasingly more difficult to achieve an "Outstanding" judgement. Well done to Emma and her team on this fantastic achievement.
