It is a lovely big house. Our son has a view over the garden, like at home. He loves the swing. He will give a thumbs up and a nod because he is happy to go back.
Hillside children’s home in Bedfordshire is approximately six miles from MacIntyre School in Wingrave. The home supports up to 5 children/young people aged 14-19.
Hillside benefits children and young people who require support in a smaller group setting and have their education and therapeutic support fully met by MacIntyre School where they attend as day pupils.
Our staff work closely with families, involving them every step of the way, sharing achievements and ensuring that a consistent, open relationship is maintained.
The residential home is also utilised for young people on the pathway to transition as a way to enhance their skills for independent living. This is supported by the delivery of a curriculum focusing on independence, community living and preparing for adulthood.
The service was inspected by Ofsted in June 2017 and found to be Good in all areas, including overall experiences and progress of children and young people, how well children and young people are helped and protected, and the effectiveness of leaders and managers.
