Our aim at Acorn Homes is to provide the young people residing in our care with assistance and guidance in the main aspects of their lives which will help them develop key skills for later life. This is based upon our staff team having Key Working sessions with our young people based upon the 5 Outcomes; Achieve Economic Well-being, Being Healthy, Enjoy and Achieve, Making a Positive Contribution and Stay Safe. By holding planned and unplanned key working sessions, it enables our staff team to gather a more deeper understanding of the young people and therefore offer better support and care for each of them.
Young people often get the negative consequences for some of their behaviour, however at Acorn Homes, we like to offer our young people positive consequences for outstanding behaviours shown during education, out on activities and in house. These may vary from a small drink from the local coffee shop to an extension to setting down times. By doing this we believe we can help boost self esteem and confidence in our young people to act and behaviour in a respectable manner.
