Greenacres is a 3 bedroom detached property in a stunning rural locati
on with views overlooking the hills. We aim to ensure that our house reflects that of a family home where young people feel safe, relaxed and cared for in a non-institutionalised setting.
Green Acres is attached to an old farm workshop therefore due to its rural location there is lots of wildlife around. Each young person has their own bedroom where there is privacy and space to do schoolwork. Young people are given a key for their room and encouraged to take responsibility for their own space. Each young person’s bedroom is warm and bright and we encourage all those who come and live with us to bring their own personal possessions to make their bedroom feel their own and take ownership of their surroundings. Staff ensure that the environment of the home is maintained to a high standard and young people are encouraged to help with jobs to keep
the communal areas clean and tidy. Young people are encouraged, to use the kitchen for the preparation of food.
The house has been refurbished to a very high standard. The home is very modern and has a very warm feel providing a friendly and caring environment. On the ground floor there is a fitted kitchen, dining room, living room, one young person’s bedroom, shower room and a downstairs toilet.
Upstairs there is a bathroom with a separate toilet and two large sized bedrooms. Outside at the front of the property there is a large parking area for vehicles and to the rear of the property there is a garden with a lawn and vegetable patch where children can play and young people can relax.
