Hope House in Newton Aycliffe, Co Durham, consists of seven self-contained, fully furnished flats and staff offices.
It is used primarily for young people who need more intensive support. They include pregnant teenagers, young families and young people with other vulnerabilities such as learning difficulties. Many have been in care at some point in their lives. It is staffed 24/7.
In the grounds we have a Big Lottery funded gardening project and there is is also a training kitchen/ICT suite. There is also Portakabin containing games, exercise equipment etc.
Everyone has a key worker and an individual support plan and progress towards goals is monitored and recorded.
