Aspen Home Activities

Here in Aspen house we strive to offer the best quality of care for all eight of our young people. We are a full 38week home with all our young people going home in the holidays. We have eight young men in Aspen aged 12-16, we have recently welcomed back a young person from Cedar house who has settled in very well it is always nice to welcome back old friends, and we are very excited to welcome two new young people who have recently joined Aspen house.

In Aspen we ensure that all young people have the opportunity to be an active part of how they would like their home to look and run, we encourage them all the have a voice and make decisions and choices at any given opportunity. We also work daily with the young people on their life skills and IEPs and just their general living skills ensuring that all have the abilities and opportunities to be a part of the cooking and cleaning of the home as well as helping staff with around the school on a daily basis. 

We all feel that it is vitally important that our young people are an active member of our community so at any opportunity we take full advantage of the wonderful local community and the activities we have around. We are always out for beach trips walks visits to local cafes, shopping trips and out for dinner. We use the cinema and the local bowling alley as well as many trips to a lovely park in Ash. As well as all day trips to Theme parks, sea life centres and nights out to watch England play football.
