Admission Criteria

Games Room - The Old School House- Friday Bridge

Boys between the ages of 8-16 years and if deemed appropriate can be accommodated up to the age of 18 years. We work with a maximum of six young people in each home. Young people may have encountered difficulties of a behavioural, emotional and educational nature.

All referrals will be assessed on the basis of whether the home can effect change and meet the needs of the individiual young person. We prefer admissions to be planned, but will consider emergency/crisis if deemed to be an appropriate placement in relation to the resident group of young people living in the home.

As education is a key part of the provision, it is expected that placements are organised around the educational windws of opportunity , eg 11 and 14 years. It will be expected that young people placed do not move on in the middle of an academic year.
