Provider details

Service Description:
We offer step-down placements supporting the transition from hospital to home for medically-stable children and young people aged 0-18 with complex health needs.

We offer step-down placements supporting the transition from hospital to home for medically-stable children and young people aged 0-18 with complex health needs. These placements typically follow surgical procedures or prolonged stays in intensive care units where the child might otherwise be staying long-term in hospital.

We also support children and young people with a range of degenerative and life-limiting condition, as well as babies who may need transitional support from neonatal intensive care to home.

Children receive round-the-clock, specialist care in a beautiful home-from-home environment, supported by 24-hour nursing, care teams and daytime on-site medical provision. The service is enhanced by clinical assessments, a wide range of therapies, education and opportunities for play and family outings.

Planning for a child’s return home begins before they even arrive with us. We work collaboratively with the child’s family, local agencies and our community counterparts to make the transition of children to their homes as quickly and as safely as possible.
For children and young people who are unable to go home immediately for medical or social reasons, we help to identify the most appropriate care provider. We can also support children following major surgical procedures and those experiencing prolonged intensive care stays for non-neurological conditions.

We have a dedicated Placements Team who are happy to discuss (formally or informally) the referral process of each of our services, admissions criteria and the assessment process.

Please contact them on 01737 365080 or email enquiries@thechildrenstrust.org.uk. Enquiries are accepted from parents and professionals.
