Swanwick Lodge is a well designed facility. The living accommodation, learning centre and administration blocks are arranged around the perimeter of the site with a central garden providing an area for recreation and activities. Swanwick Lodge is a 16 bedded facility comprised of two separate residential units. Each young person has their own bedroom with en-suite shower and toilet. The bedrooms are designed to ensure maximum security, whilst permitting privacy and personal space.
Swanwick Lodge also has a purpose built learning centre as part of the facility. This is furnished and resourced to the highest standard. Swanwick Lodge has an excellent reputation nationally for the standard of the education and training offered to the young people placed and this has been commented on and commended by OFSTED.
We are very fortunate to be able to offer the following in addition to the learning centre and therapy.
The learning centre is open for activities in each school holiday following a published programme.
Young people have access to computers both in school and on the living units.
The greatest resource we have is our staff team who have specialist training to enable them to work with vulnerable young people to make changes in their lives.
