Bourne House provides care for one young person, aged 6-12, who has emotional and behaviour needs, underpinned by trauma and attachment difficulties. The home provides children with an environment in which they can feel safe and loved, something which is key to effectively understanding and supporting children and young people who have experienced trauma and Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs).

Bourne House’s ethos is very characterised by a ‘can do’ attitude. The home’s adults share the value of creating a home for the children which reflects a family atmosphere; they are skilled in supporting children and young people who have experienced trauma, ACEs and have attachment difficulties to reach their full potential.

The home provides truly integrated care through the Attachment and Trauma-Informed Care (ATIC©) model, which combines care, education and therapy. All adults in the home are highly trained in working with children and young people, providing a loving and nurturing home with positive routines and consistency. Bourne House places a high significance on children, this involves including the children in the day to day running of the home.

Bourne House works hard to ensure positive and appropriate relationships are developed and built by adults with the children and young people. The team’s nurturing, supportive approach ensures an environment conducive to achieving positive outcomes for all children and young people. The home’s culture and ethos are reflected within the adult’s practice, with the home’s manager committed to ensuring that all adults understand:

  • The needs of every child.
  • Each child’s history.
  • The outcomes we are aiming to achieve.
  • The approaches that support every individual.

“Staff have developed positive and trusting relationships with the child who lives at this home. He receives good care and support from a staff team whose members have got to know him well. Staff are nurturing and show him genuine warmth and affection. The child gave 10/10 for how much he likes living here and for the staff who look after him. He says he feels safe.” – Ofsted, 2019.

The ultimate goal of Bourne House is to create a centre of excellence that provides the best care possible, in the best environment that can be achieved.
