Residential children’s homes


A residential children’s home (or children's home) is a place where children and young people live when they cannot be at home with their own families. Children's homes look after children from many different backgrounds and with often challenging life experiences.  As with all children, their individual needs and ambitions are encouraged by staff so that they can keep their sense of personal identity and, wherever possible, links with their communities.

Residential children’s homes aim to provide:

  • A safe and stable place for children and young people to develop and grow
  • Opportunities for children and young people to talk through some of the difficult issues they might have faced as well as their ambitions for the future

In residential children's homes you may find roles such as:

  • Residential child care manager
  • Residential child care deputy manager
  • Residential child care senior care worker
  • Residential child care worker
