Swanwick Lodge provides support and care for up to sixteen young people aged between 10 and 17

We specialise in looking after young people who have complex needs and present a significant risk of harm to themselves or to others.

We provide residential care for up to 16 male and female young people aged between 10 and 17 years, within a safe and secure, therapeutic environment. We give young people access to the specialist services they need to help them recover from difficult life experiences.

We support these young people to develop positive stable relationships, and resettle in their communities where they can make a contribution and improve their life chances and outcomes.
