Ofsted Good Provider
Every child and young person moving into Ebble House is given a clear plan with clear objectives based on their needs. The emphasis of our practice is upon attachments, regardless of past experiences or behaviour, it is our job to support positive change of their attachment experiences. In this, the team is supported and trained to deliver maximum opportunity of outcomes within a “Pro Active Approaches” based support plan.

Ebble House is a well-established children’s home based in Wiltshire. The home has been able to provide exceptional outcomes for children and young people. The home is close to the city centre with excellent links to public transport, local support services, schools, colleges, events and activities.

“Children new to this home experience a warm welcome from a dedicated staff team. Regular multi-agency meetings maintain a focus on the child, and close working with the in-house therapy team contributes to an assessment of needs.”
Ofsted, 2019

The team shares a mission: “Through providing a safe, homely environment which is filled with love, laughter and nurture, combined with consistent routines, we enable our child to grow and develop, being supported to achieve their full potential while knowing they are valued and loved. We embrace practice based on play, acceptance of who they are, love, curiosity, empathy and consistency.”

We give support, care and nurture to every child and young person, with an integrated package of residential care, clinical intervention and education designed to help them overcome childhood experiences and trauma. Ebble House’s speciality is working with children who have attachment disorders or have suffered childhood trauma or adverse childhood experiences (ACE’s). The children and young people may have associated syndromes such as ADD, ODD, and low levels of autism as long as trauma and attachment are the overriding diagnosis.

“(…) Young people receive good-quality, personalised care that meets their needs. Staff develop positive relationships with them and show them genuine warmth and care. Young people say that they like living here…”
Ofsted, 2019

“I am the independent visitor for Ebble which is a warm and welcoming home. The manager is very passionate about supporting the children to reach their full potential and has supported two children to successfully move on from the home in the last 12 months. The children are supported to express their views and feelings with the manager strongly advocating for the children in his care. Reporting and recording is robust and team meetings which are held on a regular basis supports good practice within the home. I speak with the team, children and professionals as part of the inspection process and have received positive feedback in relation to support provided and quality of care”. Regulation 44 inspector, July 2020
