Hillside Secure Centre
Hillside is a national purpose built Secure Children’s Home, which opened in 1996. We are an integral part of Social Services Children’s Provision. We can accommodate up to twenty-two children and young people of either gender between the ages of 12 – 17 years.
The resources available within and to the Centre enable an intensive response to meet the complex and diverse needs of children and young people.
The work undertaken maintains a caring, controlled yet relaxed environment that enables each child and young person to feel safe and secure within themselves and able to take responsibility and control over their own lives, having developed many aspects of personal development and self worth. This is achieved through a high quality of care, education, assessment and therapeutic intervention that impacts positively on changing behaviours holistically.
The service delivery is undertaken by well-trained experienced, often qualified persons in the respective fields of expertise. We invest heavily in our staff team and provide a comprehensive three-year training programme that includes induction, specialisms and NVQs at level 3 and 4. Staff are linked to direct programmed work in relation to their competence and expertise to support and co-work alongside specialist workers.
The range of comprehensive assessments and individualised programmes of intervention are monitored and evaluated regularly and the outcomes reported through the monthly case reviewing process.
Detailed monitoring through information technology systems evidence the progress made by children and young people on an on-going basis and used by staff to work with children / young people. This information is evaluated by the Senior Management Team monthly and informs decisions in respect to individuals as well as service delivery and development, highlighting ‘what works’ on an individual and Centre basis. These outcomes are consistently evaluated against the Home’s Mission Statement and Child Care Principles.
Our Mission Statement:
“To impact in the life of a child or young person enabling positive development to maintain a fulfilling life in the community”.
