Malala House is a residential therapeutic community which provides high quality care and substitute parenting for up to seven children and young people who have social, emotional and lower level mental health concerns aged between 10 – 17 years. Malala House is a large, stone built, detached home with lots of period features. Thoughtfully decorated and furnished to a high standard; it is homely, calming, and comfortable. There is also a large private garden which will provide the children with positive outside space to relax, play outdoor games and the opportunity to grow plants and vegetables.
All the children are afforded experiences and opportunities they need to equip them for the transition into adult life. Quality relationships between the children and the residential support workers are a significant feature in effecting change in the children.
Children will have access to specific therapy and psychological assessments Nurture First: New Ways Overcoming Childhood Trauma as directed within their individual programme plan. A range of resources will be provided, designed to meet the individual needs of the children placed within the home. We are child centred and measure success by achieving good outcomes.
