Our Homes


Woodbridge House is a large and spacious 4 bedded house that is situated in the small coastal town of Whitstable. It is fortunate to be located within a quiet residential area that is situated within walking distance of the local conveniences such as shops, cafes, restaurants, and various leisure facilities including, gym, swimming pool, bowling alley and riding centres. Our local park also provides outdoor equipment for the young people to enjoy, and they benefit from a range of calming local coastal walks and activities.

Woodbridge House has recently re-opened, and we are thrilled to offer provision and care to the children/young people who live here. The home can provide care and accommodation for children and young people who have emotional and/or behavioural difficulties (EBD).

The ethos at Woodbridge House is to create an environment where children and young people can develop the skills to sustain positive relationships and secure attachments, based on building trust, providing a high standard of care and support, listening to children’s views, wishes and feelings and ensuring they are central to the planning of their own care as well as the running of the home.

Madison House is a modern one-story home and has three registered beds. It is in a quiet cul-de-sac near Ramsgate and has a staff group of ten including the Manager and Deputy. The Ofsted rating on this home at the last key inspection was GOOD. We have traditionally used this home, and its sister home, Mulberry Court, to provide homes for children and young people who can be categorised as at the lower end of the Autistic spectrum.

Mulberry Court was established a few years earlier than its sister home, Madison House. The home is once again registered for three beds and is a specious modern one-story building. On the occasion of the last Ofsted key inspection, this home received a grading of GOOD. This home also has a staff of ten and a designated Registered Manager and Deputy.

As with Madison House, the client group cared for at this home are at the lower end of the autistic spectrum and the staff group, from whom the Registered Manager is drawn, have the appropriate training and skill sets for the residents there. Matching for placements is of course crucial in each of these homes and we often find that the placements are at a premium here and that vacancies are generally quickly filled even taking into account our careful matching processes.

Ocean Lodge is a four bed Registered home situated on the seafront in Herne Bay. It was opened in 2007 and is our most established and well-accredited home as a result. The last Ofsted key inspection rated this home as GOOD.

Ocean Lodge has a staff team of twelve including the Registered Manager and Deputy. The home is registered for four children and young people and is much sought after. The home provides care for a resident group which can be categorised as “emotional and/or behavioural difficulties” (EBD) and can on occasion take emergency or same-day placements.

Ocean Lodge over the years has provided a sound home environment for particularly long-standing placements and has a significant track record of Children being placed at the relatively young ages of 11 or 12 and proceeding to live there into adulthood. 

In all of our homes we will always try to ensure that the residents receive prime activities experience appropriate to their needs and requirements. Because of its location right on the seafront and because of the client group, activities functions at Ocean Lodge represent a very large part of the daily curriculum for children and staff.

Roseland House is a two bed Registered home located in the rural area outside of Sittingbourne. It is a detached farmhouse property very much concealed from the lanes and highways surrounding the premises. The home has a team of eight staff including the Registered Manager and Deputy. Manager and staff competencies reflect the service provision offered here at Roseland; where experience and professional resilience plus the ability to take instruction from expert external professionals in implementing care plans is of vital importance.

Over the 4 years in which this home has been operating, its primary and most effective function has been to provide a safe environment for a complex case which might for certain periods of time benefit from a more intensive staff to client ratio. It is used most often to facilitate and concentrate multi-professional resources on the child or young person subject to a forensic care treatment plan. For this reason, placements can often have staff to client ratio of two staff to one child. The detached property and rural location suit the initial needs of many such cases and long protracted placements are therefore relatively rare in this home. Like Ocean Lodge outlined above this home is much valued by local authorities and it is very rare to have a vacant bed for long.
