Beaulieu House is our children’s residential and respite service for children and young people with a varying complexity of needs, such as:
- severe learning difficulties
- cerebral palsy
- behaviours which challenge society's expectations.
Our service is purpose-built and accessible to all children and young people who may or may not require assisted aids, such as a wheelchair. It is located in Newport and is part of our Children and Families services. Beaulieu House supports children and young people from all over the Island and is accessed through our Children and Families team.
Beaulieu House is registered with Ofsted to provide a children's home and short break support to meet the assessed and agreed need of the individual child or young person until they transition into adult services.
Referrals to Beaulieu House
All children and young people who access any part of Beaulieu House will have an identified social worker who will make a referral for services on behalf of the child or young person and their family. The referral is discussed at a panel and if the request meets Beaulieu House statement of purpose, staff from Beaulieu House will contact you and give your child an impact assessment. Thereafter, our staff will plan a visit of Beaulieu House with your family.
Once the assessment process is complete and criteria is met, a transition into the service begins with the need of the child or young person at the centre.
Our support is given through a bespoke package of care with the child or young person being at the centre of the decision-making process. All children and young people accessing Beaulieu House have a care plan with agreed outcomes. This enables them to continually develop and to make maximum life choices and take chances in a supportive environment.
We work in partnership with all significant people in the child's life to provide an environment which is positive, stimulating and proactive in enabling children and young people with varying complexity of needs to reach their potential, ensuring privacy, dignity and equality through enablement and inclusion.
We actively encourage children and young people to participate within the decision-making process affecting their lives.
