3Current trends would suggest a growth in demand for this type of short term work and we have the experience and resources to meet this need.

We have facilities which allow us to respond, where possible, to requests for short term respite care, or emergency admission.

This type of placement can be used successfully when young people in the community need a form of short term crisis intervention. It also provides a protective support at times of family breakdown.

It can also provide a familiar environment for those of our day pupils who are having similar experiences.
