Holly Lodge

Holly Lodge | Residential Childrens Home

A former vicarage set on half an acre of land, Holly Lodge is for boys and girls aged 5-12 upon admission. It is registered for 7 children. The home includes: 7 individual bedrooms which are personalised for each child, two comfortable lounge spaces, a large kitchen a separate dining room, and a large garden.  Holly Lodge has good transport links and a range of activities in the local area, such as bowling, trampolining, and cinemas.

Holly Lodge is a therapeutic home specifically designed, furnished, and managed to optimally deliver the Restorative Parenting® Recovery Programme. Our children have experienced trauma in the context of care giving and we therefore treat the trauma through the delivery of safe and highly nurturing care enabling them to be able to thrive in a group-living home. We ensure children placed in the home achieve outstanding outcomes and recovery from childhood trauma.

Holly Lodge is an integrated home with a wide range of therapeutic interventions and an onsite school to achieve the best outcome for the child. On-site education is provided at our OFSTED-rated “Good” Brambles School.

Our Mission | Restorative Parenting Recovery Programme

Our mission is to enhance children’s psychological health within the care system. Our Restorative Parenting® Recovery Programme is a therapeutic re-parenting programme that focuses on addressing the child’s emotional, behavioural, social, and developmental needs.

The Restorative Parenting® Recovery Index (RPRI) is both a marker of a child’s progress and a guide through the therapeutic journey.

Ofsted Report 

“The staff team talk about children positively and recognise their individual needs. Children told inspectors about the positive relationships and fun that they have with staff and their key workers. Children also say that the staff talk to them to help them become calmer when they are feeling upset. Children enjoy going to school. They understand that this is part of their daily routine. They have consistent school attendance and make progress in their education”.
