The Stables is a registered three bedded home for males and females between the ages of 8 and 18 who may be displaying emotional and behavioural difficulties.
As a home that supports young people with challenging behaviour, our team are trained to the highest standard. We are equipped to deal with situations surrounding trauma, attachment disorders, emotional problems, lack of empathy and low senses of safety.
At The Stables, we believe that children and young people’s views should be heard, not just in the planning for their own lives, but in shaping the nature and quality of the service they receive. Therefore, participation lies at the heart of our approach. Our team empower the young people in our care by involving them in aspects of their lives. This includes anything from consultation and inclusion in assessment to influential involvement in service design and delivery.
Through this responsive process of democratic inclusion, the Brae provides an environment in which children and young people can begin to rebuild themselves as agents in their own lives and thereafter citizens in the world beyond.
The Stables is a spacious detached bungalow with two public rooms and four bedrooms. Two of the bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms. The kitchen has an adjoining dining room and is well equipped with electric oven and gas hob where young people are actively encouraged to partake in the preparation and presenting meals to encourage independence.
Located in beautiful countryside, the atmosphere and calming effect of the outdoors has a substantial impact on keeping young people relaxed throughout their long-term care.
The local area has a main bus and train station, a variety of shops and amenities including a swimming pool and gym, health centre, primary and secondary schools, golf course and riding school. Residents at The Stables are always encouraged to participate in activities outside of the home and attend local events.
The communal lounge is well decorated creating a comfortable room which is equipped with both a television and a DVD player. Within the grounds, there is a classroom where our educational staff deliver 1:1 educational support to the young people who live in our homes. This classroom is integral to the development of our residents in our home-schooling and residential childcare home.
Communication through relationships provides the very fabric of life within our environment. The 1:1 educational support provides a channel for progression, allowing young people to develop positive attachments and trust. This encourages emotional and personal individual growth.
