“Nanny Brook” offers young people, who are often in crisis, a family environment where they can settle, relax and bring allow for some stability in their lives. An environment where they will receive understanding, encouragement and support from adults who care and are trained to work in a professional and non-judgmental way. Our staff will work hard to lead the young people towards reaching their full potential and prepare them for the responsibilities of future citizenship.
We offer a safe, stable, caring and nurturing environment that will bring some stability to the lives of young people, allowing them to develop and equip them with the skills to make responsible choices and cope well as individual citizens. We treat each young person as an individual with a variety of individual needs that are addressed in a positive and progressive manner as part of a clearly defined care plan.
