Residential Learning

St Joseph’s Specialist Trust is registered with Ofsted as a Children’s Home. There are seven boarding houses that encourage and support young people to maximise their full potential.

Young people have the benefit of the waking day curriculum where they develop and achieve in many aspects of their lives and maximise key skills towards independent living.

Young people can spend time pursuing their various hobbies and interests whilst achieving their objectives within their EHCP. Staff encourage and support young people in all areas of independence and the development of skills to enable interaction out in the community.

There are excellent links to education and therapies to ensure a cohesive and consistent approach in all areas of their home.

Staffing of the houses are key to success; each house has a Manager and Deputy Manager leading a team of dedicated care staff. All staff receive key training to enable them to support the young people achieve their potential.

For more information on the residential services St Joseph’s offers, please contact Alan Day, Director of Care Services at  or telephone 01483 272449.
