Provider Details:

At Bristol City Council, we've redefined our approach to children's residential care. We've transitioned to smaller homes, with a focus on providing personalised care for 2 to 3 children at a time. This enables us to better match placements and offer a homely environment where children feel safe, loved, and nurtured. Our trauma-informed approach ensures that we understand and cater to the individual needs of each child, empowering them to thrive.
