"I have had a young person placed at Brook View yesterday, following a successful 2 week transition plan from hospital that the placement had co-ordinated. They put a lot of thought and consideration into the young persons needs, ensuring the transition was in his best interest and successful; it could not have gone better!
I have only positives comments regarding the placement, from the moment contact was made for an assessment Brook View worked professionally with myself and the multi-agency team. They ensured the matching process for the children was completed, and gathered all the relevant information. It was and is clear that the staff are highly knowledgeable and skilled in the specific needs of the children they work with and I am really pleased with the placement so far! They definitely have the children's best interests at heart and want to achieve positive outcomes.
I hope I don't have another young person in such a complex situation again, but I would definitely recommend a Brook View placement again if needed"

The Head Teacher has been really helpful. She really gets things done. If she says she’s going to do something she does it. She’s done everything she has said she would do. It’s important that I can trust people when I leave my son at the end of the day and that I know he’s well looked after.
The home is really nice. [My son] can’t have carpets on the floor but the floor in his bedroom is really nice. I see [him] every other day at the home and then on zoom every other day. He is safe there.”

"The staff are very professional and so child-focussed, I can’t fault them. The improvement [the student] has made in just a week is phenomenal and down to the knowledge and professionalism of the staff. It’s an amazing placement. Brook View is a beautiful place and I’m so pleased that he has got his own bathroom. Having the school on site is perfect. He went to a lesson yesterday, which was amazing considering he has had no meaningful education since primary school. It’s incredible how much progress he has made in such a short time."
