Welcome to Highbury House

Highbury House supports seven young people aged 11-18 years with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and conduct disorders. The young people will also have a statement of educational needs, as a result of emotional and behavioural difficulties. Our home is situated in Herefordshire within a rural location and benefits from beautiful picturesque views.

Supporting the needs of the young people

Our mission is to become a centre of excellence for residential care, education and therapy, serving children and young people who have social, emotional and behavioural difficulties. To achieve this goal, we have a comprehensive and ongoing staff training programme. We see our primary function as the management of change through a positive residential experience. Highbury House should be an opportunity for ‘a new beginning’. We strive to create a learning environment, where positive approaches produce positive outcomes, which aim to compensate for past failure and prepare young people for the future.

The staff roles include a Deputy Manager or Team Leader on shift across the three teams, with the remainder of the teams made up with residential support workers. Highbury House predominantly run on 1-1 funded placements or group living placements. The staff are trained in a variety of courses, some of which are face-to-face and some of which are completed through E-Learning. Some of the skilled training that is undertaken includes Safeguarding, Fire Marshall, Emergency First-Aid, Team Teach restrictive physical intervention training and Behaviour Management.
