Our primary aim at The Willows 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 nurturing into independence that might otherwise have been denied to them.

Our experienced team have an exceptionally high level of clinical and therapeutic supervision to aid them in delivering a service that is second to none. The home benefits from leadership and guidance from therapeutic directors who have over of 15 years of experience of working in this field at Anderida.

The team have a wide knowledge of the facilities and activities which are available in the local areas and our young people are encouraged to take full advantage of these activities. The train station is a short drive away, which is helpful in reducing any temptation which residents may have to cope with problems by running away from home.

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.

As a manager at Anderida, I have committed myself to achieving the highest possible standards in line with my fellow managers. 


The ethos of The Willows, is to inspire young people towards independence and empower them in their daily lives so that they may leave care with the skills needed to succeed in the outside world. I am very proud of the work we do here and in my years with Anderida, I have seen many young people blossom, turning their lives around and looking forward to brighter futures.


I am passionate about ensuring young people have all the opportunities they need to grow and reach their full potential.  In addition; I am extremely proud of the team’s hard work with supporting our young people through the development of emotional health and practical life skills and envision being a part of the success of the Anderida team for years to come.
