Home residential care provision

We support our young people in small, family-style homes, meeting the needs of the different experiences that our young people bring with them.

Our care homes have 3 bedrooms, whereby we use 2 for long-term residents and 1 as a temporary need, as a route to fostering for a young person.

Oadby is a town in the borough of Oadby and Wigston in the county of Leicestershire and has a thriving high street at the center of a busy and friendly community. Oadby is located 10 minutes outside of Leicester City Centre but has all the amenities needed on a daily basis.

It has easy public transport routes into the city and is a short drive away from the Leicestershire countryside, providing flexibility and a choice of lifestyle.
