Anderida are now able to offer same-day crisis solution for a young person who does not meet the criteria for a secure residential bed, or may be being considered for a secure bed, but for whom a safer community placement is the preferred option.


Woodlands is log cabin, situated in a beautiful forest environment in the highlands of Scotland. The home, perfect for one young person, is a calm and tranquil place for those who require some time out, respite and safety without the distractions of other young people or community pressures. The young person will spend time with our highly experienced and qualified therapeutic mentors. Our aim for the young person is for them to return home to their families, foster families, other care provisions or to move to one of our own Ofsted registered homes in East Sussex.

This respite home is registered with the Scottish Care Inspectorate and is currently rated as very good. A young person can spend up to 8 weeks at the home, with a further 5 weeks available upon request. During this time, relevant care assessments can be completed or supported by the team. For an additional fee, psychological assessments may also be available.

This remote, rural, respite home has the benefit of therapeutically supporting a young person who may be presenting risks or at risk; a young person who is not currently being contained in the community. It is our aim to give them time to reflect and develop ways in which to keep themselves safe on their return to community living. 


The young person will have the opportunity to undertake intensive Child Sexual Exploitation work, alongside engaging in a wide range of activities both educational and fun. There is the option for young people who are staying at the home for a longer period, to engage in an informal interim education package, or formal education covering a full curriculum facilitated by our DFES registered school (Anderida Learning Centre).
