The service provides medium & long term carer for children and young people aged between 08 – 18 years who have experienced behavioural, emotional and social difficulties.
We provide help and support for children and young people who have experienced difficult times through early trauma abuse and separations.
We offer children's care with uniqueness and individuality, setting of new homes and troubleshooting staff, disciplinary coaching as it's a demanding business sector.
I just wanted to contact to thank you and share our appreciation for the care, support and love that Clouds Care and your staff are providing. It is so nice to hear how well the young person has settled into placement and the good relationships that he is building with your staff team. I know the social worker is so happy with how this placement has worked and offered him one of the most stable periods of care that he has had in years. It is absolutely clear to see how much time, effort and care your team are putting in to the young person's placement with Clouds Care.
Clouds Care nurturing ethos and positive practice allowed me to learn a great deal about myself while caring for a troubled and challenging young person. I felt always supported in my caring practice, encouraged to test new approaches, reflect on mistakes and share the joys of success. Clouds Care is definitely a great place to learn about being a career, with many opportunities for career development and personal growth.
The staff team will work hard to ensure that the following ethos and values are an integral part of life at Clouds Children’s Care: The staff will use a peerson centred approach and will concentrate on the individual viewing problems. The problems will not be seen as defining the young person and will not be the absolute focus of all our attention. Emphasis will be on:
Our homes work within a Non-Violent Resistance (NVR) therapeutic framework, supported by attachment theory, raising our presence as care givers in the process.
From walking through our doors, young people are greeted by a warm, smiley, caring team, ready to help them through any confusion and turmoil.
Staff are selected through a vigorous assessment process, involving of the young people at the final stage. The majority of new recruits are already experienced and qualified.
Parents are encouraged to be involved by the completion of the “Parent Plan”. Every little helps us to help others.
We take the initial Local Authority Care Plan and aim to create a masterpiece, reaching above and beyond expectations. The young people are totally involved.
We bring a creative approach to behaviour management, every approach is personalised to the individual, no model is the same.
Taking place regularly with young people, these highly productive sessions assist and inform decisions they may make in the future.
New recruits with limited qualifications and experience go through an intensive training programme and robust probationary period.
Helping young people, their families and carers to address issues and to be solution focused can lead to residential care being a positive experience at an important stage of the young person’s life.
The home caters for children that also have complex issues and who are experiencing developmental difficulties and problematic early life experiences, including attachment disorder, emotional behaviours and moderate to low learning difficulties.
