Our main aim is to provide a safe, stable and structured environment in which young people can settle and then grow emotionally and physically into mature young adults, attaining the confidence and independence needed to become positive members of the community.
We understand the limited choices that the young people may have experienced, so actively encourage them to be involved in the decision making surrounding their life. We believe this enables, empowers and promotes good decision making within structured boundaries. This is reinforced by a staff team with a wealth of experience dedicated to supporting the young person and promoting their rights.
We pride ourselves on helping to make the move to the home a safe, comfortable transition. Following a referral to our service and a thorough assessment and matching process, the young person will move into Greenside View. The house, situated in a quiet residential area, can accommodate up to three young people. All young people moving into the home will be supported with a 1.5:1 or 2:1 staffing ratio and this will be assessed depending on the young persons needs.
Our staff have a good knowledge of the local area and activities. The activities available range from swimming, fishing, horse riding or mountain biking to cinemas, theatres and sailing. The South Downs are on our doorstep, as is the “Sunshine Coast” of East Sussex.

I have been working at Anderida since September 2010. Prior to this I worked with children and young people with a variety of needs since 2003. In 2009, I graduated from University with a joint honours degree in Psychology and Educational Development.
Initially, I started working at Anderida as a Bank Mentor and after completing my Diploma Level 3 in Children and Young People's Workforce, I went on to become a key worker and full-time member of the team. I progressed through Senior and Deputy roles after completing my Level 5 Diploma. I took a short break form Anderida following Maternity Leave and worked for ESCC. This role involved working with children and young people in schools, supporting both schools and families who were expriencing challenging behaviour and attendance issues.
