About Moor Farm Cottage

Rated ‘Outstanding’ for a seventh successive inspection from Ofsted, Moor Farm Cottage is a spacious, homely and nurturing children’s home located in a Derbyshire village.

We support young people aged 7-18 years with social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) needs.

Supporting the needs of the young people
