Age and Gender: 4-17 years, male and female
Provision AHCT


The Birches is twinned with Heather Lodge, both of which are based in Folkestone, Kent and which are within five minute walking distance of each other. This allows for them to operate individually as a home but close enough to be able to join together and to feel part of the same Therapeutic Community. We have a specialist school that is situated across both sites and is registered by the DfE as an SEBD and AHCT provision.
