About us

Beaulieu House

Beaulieu House is a local authority children’s residential and respite service for children and young people with varying complexity of needs such as:

  • autism
  • severe learning difficulties
  • cerebral palsy
  • ADHD
  • behaviours which challenge society

Beaulieu House is a purpose built and designed service which is accessible to all children and young people who may or may not require assisted aids such as a wheelchair. It is situated within the area of Newport and is part of the children and families services. Beaulieu House supports children and young people from all over the Island and is accessed via our Children and Families branch.

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/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 initiate contact and undertake an impact assessment. They will then contact the child/young person and their family to plan a visit. Once the assessment process is complete and criteria is met, a transition into the service begins with the need of the child/young person at the centre.

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/young person until they transition into adult services. This support will be through a bespoke package of care with the child/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 the child/young person to continually develop and to attain maximum life choices and chances in a supportive environment.

We will 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 will actively encourage children and young people to participate within the decision making process affecting their lives.

We have a Statement of Purpose which explains the objectives and the aims of the home.
