"The catalogue of broken placements that young people in our care have often endured seem to come to an end when they reach Young Foundations"

Young Foundations

Young Foundations provides a range of services for children and young people - with or without learning disabilities - through residential care, transition and fostering.

The young person is at the heart of everything we do - we strive for stability, calm and a feeling of security and safety for the child, who often may have come to us following a string of failed placements.

We pride ourselves on giving young people the space and opportunity to settle, develop and ultimately make progress. Young people who are referred to us may have a range of difficulties including learning disabilities, emotional and behavioural issues or mental health problems.

Young Foundations has residential homes in the North-East and the Midlands of England, as well as in Scotland, while we can provide fostering placements in the North-East and the North-West of England.

Our residential homes can support children and young people aged between 12 and 17, while our transitions homes support those aged 16 to 25. Our foster carers offer support up to the age of 18 years old and this includes this includes mother and baby placements.

We can provide short-term crisis intervention through to longer-term stays. Several young people come in to Young Foundations at a later age and stay beyond the age of 18.
