The ethos and philosophy behind our children’s homes is “Empowering & Potential” The ethos and philosophy behind our children’s homes is “Empowering Growth & Potential” At Lilac House we do not believe that any one model or tool holds the answer to supporting children and young people reaching their potential in a nurturing and homely environment.
Lilac House provides care for children and young people both male and female who display emotional and behavioral problems and attachment disorders. The young person may be unable to live with other young people or in a group setting and would benefit from living in a small environment, supporting them to move on into a group residential setting, fostering, return to their family placement or semi-independence.
We have found through years of experience that a humanistic approach through child centered practice works in a way to empower our young people to be in control of their lives. Much of the focus of our work lies within task focused approaches to behavioral management, setting small achievable targets identified by the young person leading towards a bigger objective. Many of our young children have complex needs and experienced trauma and loss and at a time of crisis when arriving at Lilac House.
