We want our children's families and foster families to be fully involved in our work and their children's progress. This process starts prior to admission when we meet and talk with parents and professionals about their expectations and hopes for their children.

Once placed with us children visit home according to the plan agreed upon in their programme. Families also visit Appletree, Fell House and Willow Bank to spend time with their children in the beautiful Lake District setting. Many families have found that with our support they have been able to regain a relationship with their child which they thought they had lost forever.
