Transforming lives and changing futures’

Transforming lives and changing futures’
Open Day for new Nurture home with education for 7-11 year olds, Leeds.

Five Rivers is pleased to announce that Fountain House, Leeds, (Ofsted rating “Good”) has reopened after complete refurbishment and redesign based on our 25 years’ experience and following consultations with regional local authority colleagues who have identified a need for more placement options for younger children.

Fountain House will be holding four Open Days from 11am – 3pm on the 15th and 29th of October and 12th and 26th November 2014. Please join us to hear more about the launch of our transformative outreach, placement support and residential treatment services. Lunch will be provided. Please contact Shirley Teall at [email protected]

More than a children’s home and DfE registered school (key stages 2 and 3) Fountain House will provide a safe, nurturing and enriching sanctuary which will reclaim childhoods and act as a therapeutic bridge to restore children to their full potential. Our psychotherapists, experienced manager, residential care team and education staff will use a model of trauma and attachment informed practice and work in an integrated way with colleagues in our Fostering service and in the local authorities.

We will help children through re-parenting to heal and recover from their traumatic experiences and work towards a placement with Five Rivers’ own highly-supported and specially selected and trained foster carers.
Children who will be suitable for the service will be identifiable through a pattern of breaking down foster placements – we aim to provide the right placement first time and next time.

Children will be aged between 7 – 11 years old on admission and there will be indications of behavioural and emotional difficulties as a result of complex trauma (attachment or trauma symptoms).
Fountain House will open on the 7th of August but please contact us at [email protected] to book a place on our open day which will be held before then.

Five Rivers Child Care is a social enterprise and has achieved 25 years of partnership with local authorities.
