Lansdowne Secure Unit
Lansdowne Secure Children’s Home accommodates up to seven young people of either gender aged 13-17 years, and below the age of 13 with Secretary of State’s approval, in a physically secure environment. The client group comprises of young people who have displayed serious and extreme behaviours which have resulted in them needing to be placed in a secure children’s home for their own protection or protection of others in the community.
The ethos at Lansdowne is one in which children can thrive within a safe, secure but homely environment. A strong emphasis on recognition and reward for achievement encourages self esteem and confidence to enjoy the benefits of group living. Well trained and experienced staff use a variety of therapeutic approaches. Life at Lansdowne revolves around a system of behaviour modification which rewards good behaviour. Cognitive behaviour therapy is also widely used allowing children to look seriously at past experiences. It is important for children to work hard at the issues set out in their care plans and to take every opportunity to improve their education, but alongside this we want our children to enjoy their leisure time and have fun.
