The Keswick Care Way

A warm welcome

From walking through our doors, young people are greeted by a warm, smiley, caring team, ready to help them through any confusion and turmoil.

Care planning

We take the initial Local Authority Care Plan and aim to create a masterpiece, reaching above and beyond expectations. The young people are totally involved.

Parental input

Parents are encouraged to be involved by the completion of the “Parent Plan”. Every little helps us to help others.

Tailored Support

We bring a creative approach to behaviour management, every approach is personalised to the individual, no model is the same

Key working sessions

Taking place regularly with young people, these highly productive sessions assist and inform decisions they may make in the future.

Expert team

Staff are selected through a vigorous assessment process, involving of the young people at the final stage. The majority of new recruits are already experienced and qualified.

Specialist training

New recruits with limited qualifications and experience go through an intensive training programme and robust probationary period. All staff have regular training to grow their skills.

Therapeutic Support

We have a multi-sensory therapy room in each home, while our team’s work is complemented by the support of our own psychotherapist.

The Keswick Approach



Young people in our care are sensitively nurtured and encouraged on a daily basis. We love creating childhood experiences – the little things others take for granted like walking on a beach, skimming pebbles, rolling down hills, blowing bubbles and jumping in muddy puddles.


Young people are encouraged to succeed through creative incentive programmes. Visualising a goal to work towards, young people are encouraged to celebrate the feeling of success when they have invested so much time and effort into achieving their aim.


We use our own K.I.T Programme (Keswick Care Independent Training). Young people are supported through a series of Training Awards that build the ability to carry out tasks independently or with very little assistance. Practice makes perfect so training is re-visited regularly.
