Wood Grove creates a safe and caring environment where we provide opportunities for children and young people to achieve to their best ability. Our home provides care, guidance and support which promotes the importance of decision making and taking ownership of those decisions. Our therapeutic approach and systemic based work ensures children and young people are supported to address their feelings and emotions in a safe and supportive way.

We support young people with social emotional and mental health difficulties (SEMH), autistic spectrum conditions (ASC) and learning difficulties (LD).
