‘How we achieve excellence in outcomes – through combined interventions’

Acorn children’s homes meet complex, diverse and challenging needs successfully, with all homes  rated as GOOD or above.

The homes support young people with a range of behavioural, social and educational needs. This includes young people exhibiting challenging behaviours, anti social behaviours, criminality and who go missing. In addition many young people suffer multiple needs such as mental health issues, attachment disorders, self harm as well as risks of CSE, radicalisation, gang association and trafficking.

Acorn has developed innovative assessments and practices to meet the needs of young people placed in residential care. These include toolkits and six monthly assessments in gangs, trafficking, exploitation and radicalisation with risk assessments and action plans.  In addition, Acorn works in conjunction with Kent University, researching  the development of safeguarding devices and systems.  To meet such challenging, varied and complex needs, every young person placed within Acorn receives, as standard, high levels of professional services and support.
