What they Say about Us

I couldn’t be happier with the kind care that I received during my stay at Grove House. Staff are all delightful and could not have been nicer. I keep visiting the home and enjoy maintaining the positive relationships I have built over the years at this beautiful home. Thank you to all.
Previous Young Person
A positive culture and ethos in the home has developed, policies have been updated and all the requirements and recommendations from the previous inspection have been met. The home feels welcoming, the staff team is stable, and the children are happy and feel safe.

Children’s risk assessments and behaviour management plans are detailed and are updated to reflect changes in risks and strategies. Staff implement the behaviour management strategies, which helps to reduce and manage risk and keep children safe.

An excellent care home that made my YP who was looking for a new placement smile as soon as he walked in, it’s warm and peaceful with caring staff who provide a safe and loving environment. I would not hesitate to recommend this home. Highly recommended.
