The homes support young people with a range of emotional, social and educational needs.
In addition, many young people suffer multiple needs such as mental health issues, attachment disorders and self-harm.
Acorn has developed innovative assessments and practices to meet the needs of young people placed in residential care. These include toolkits and six-monthly assessments with risk assessments and action plans.
In addition, Acorn works in conjunction with Kent University and TEXSOS, researching the development of safeguarding devices and systems. To meet such challenging, varied and complex needs, every young person placed within Acorn receives, as standard, high levels of professional services and support.
