Cambian are specialists in providing therapeutic care for children typically aged between 4 and 12 years of age who have suffered complex trauma and have attachment difficulties. Everything we do is therapeutic in nature, allowing children to make the progress they need, and to prepare them for their next onward placement which would usually be a move into foster care or occasionally returning to their biological family where appropriate.
Our team are very child focused, understanding that our children will only thrive when they feel safe and secure. It is therefore essential to provide them with stability, consistency and continuity, ensuring at all times that the children’s wishes and feelings are considered. Building positive relationships with our children is paramount; we achieve this through our parenting approach in which each child’s key carer is critical.
The children and adults have lots of fun within our homes providing every opportunity to play, with events such as culture nights, pamper nights and themed evenings. We go on day trips that are of interest to our children and they are actively encouraged to attend community activities which can help with their social skills. We prefer to be outdoors having fun ensuring that we replace negative experiences with those that are healthy and enjoyable. Our residential homes look and feel like any other family home.
