Austen Cottage creates a safe and caring environment where we provide opportunities for children and young people to achieve to the best of their ability.

Our home provides care, guidance, support and promotes education and health which in turn promotes the importance of decision making and taking ownership of those decisions. By the use of a nurturing, supportive and consistent approach children and young people are supported to address their feelings and emotions in a safe and manageable way.

We strongly believe that children and young people should be supported and encouraged to achieve their ambitions, and in order to do so, building self-esteem must be a priority.
