Meadows Care is a specialist provider of care, therapy and education. We operate a series of 18 small homes some rural based and many within the community. All homes are furnished and decorated to an excellent standard and are specifically selected in desirable areas, to encourage our young people to take pride in their surroundings and to enable them to participate in activities within their community. The homes offer a relaxed nurturing environment.
Hello, I used to live at Meadows, I just wanted to write an email to you to say thank you really, for helping me. I’ve been a lot better with my anger since living back with my mum. I don’t think I could have done it without your help. I’m in college now, I am studying Animal Care, I love it! I never thought I’d be where I am now, I’m so grateful to this company.
We adopt a holistic approach in which care, therapy and education work together to develop bespoke packages to meet the individually assessed needs of each young person.
The majority of the young people we care for have experienced trauma and instability in their lives and this is reflected in their behaviour. Many have experienced multiple placement breakdowns and we feel it is our role to ensure that our young people develop positive attachments and are able to flourish.
Staff actively promote all aspects of the children’s lives, such as encouragement of hobbies and being taught to value and look after all aspects of their health. Achievements are celebrated, as continual improvement of the children’s self-esteem is a key focus at Meadows Care.
Staff at Meadows Care are our main resource in delivering efficient and effective services to the vulnerable young people we work with. Our multi-skilled staff team has a valuable contribution in ensuring the services we deliver are of the highest quality.
To maintain our continued commitment to the model of best practice we recognise the need to train and develop our staff. Meadows Care provides a comprehensive training programme both through professionally qualified in house trainers and via our network of external training consultants.
Meadows Care seeks to instil in our young people a sense of belonging and ownership. We want young people to take pride in their new home; we want young people to enjoy living there. We want young people to take pride in themselves, to achieve, build up strengths and develop positive coping mechanisms.
