Children share the house with their own peer group for the duration of their stay, so they are with familiar faces, and they can also do most things that they might do at home - watch TV, watch videos, listen to music, read a book. We try and get those that are able out into the fresh air during their stay. This might include a night out to the cinema, a shopping trip, a pleasant stroll, ten-pin bowling or some other event. The house is registered as a Small Home and is subject to regulation by the Domiciliary Care Association.
