The Croft Cottage provides overnight short breaks for disabled children referred by the Richmond Disabled Children’s Service.
The service can support up to five children at a time, but on most nights will support three children in a single gender friendship group. Support in the setting will be provided throughout the day and night by qualified, trained, experienced staff working in an individualised, person centred way.
Initially the service will only be open at weekends and during school holidays; however in the longer term it may open all week.
During their stay children will be supported with their personal care, physical, health, social and emotional needs. They will be engaged in fun activities in and out of the home with their friends. Children and families will be fully involved in planning the child’s stay, making decisions about the service, activities and food choices. They will be consulted throughout their relationship with the service to ensure they are happy with the service they receive and to support us to continually develop.
The Cottage is homely, bright and welcoming, and is next door to the Windham Croft Centre for Children.
The Cottage is in the process of being registered with Ofsted, once registered Ofsted will complete regular inspections.
