Statement of purpose

Stourbridge House is a service built around the families we support, giving families a break from day to day care. We can offer residential short breaks, overnight stays and emergency support. It forms part of our “Local Offer” in the Black country, which is a seamless range of services that families can access to meet the needs of their child and family. We are experienced in creating flexible packages of care that are responsive to the young people and their family’s needs, whether that be on a planned regular break or at times of crisis.

Stourbridge House staff are adaptable and engaging in their work, supporting children with all types of needs, from moderate disabilities, ASD and associated challenges, through to profound and multiple learning difficulties and complex health care needs.

We work with the young people and children that we support to provide a varied and exciting range of activities to engage and challenge depending on interests and goals.  These range from accessing events in the local community to trips to the seaside and theme parks.  As well as creating positive experiences for the young people who attend Stourbirdge House, we are experienced in working as part of a team to support the children and young people in our care to move towards independence, grow in confidence and manage their emotions in a safe way.

The short break service allows you to rest and re-charge whilst ensuring your child has a truly enriching experience.
