MERDEKA

Our primary aim is to provide a safe environment for which young people in our care can develop both physically and emotionally and to provide them with the opportunity to enjoy a level of independence that might otherwise have been denied to them. We are a proud, hard-working team who believe communication and high standards of house-keeping are the key to success. We recognise that being in care isn’t easy for the young people and we aim to provide a positive atmosphere, offering support and guidance along the way. Staff are fully equipped with a fountain of knowledge of the local area and will actively encourage our residents to take part in as many activities as possible including swimming, quad-biking, pool, ten-pin bowling and many more.

 

Merdeka, is a three-storey townhouse and can accommodate two 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. We seek to ensure that all young people's education needs are met whether this is through a mainstream or alternative provision, with the support for the care team, our young people have had much success in both.
