Oak House Ethos
'At Oak House, we believe that all children and young people have the right to a bright and fulfilled future and we aim to provide them with the best possible care, support, and quality of life they deserve, to enable them to go into adulthood with the experiences they need to succeed'.
We have a Oak house video, which shows a tour of the home and the homely environment that we have created as a team.
We want all young people to make Oak House their home and not just a place to live. Staff ensure that the home is always decorated to a high standard, clean and tidy, but most importantly, a comfortable and enjoyable environment where all young people can feel safe, secure, and thrive.
|"I would just like to thank all of the workers at Oak House for all of the hard work that they put in to ensuring that the YP who I am IRO for feels valued and nurtured. Oak House is a really homely placement which is just what this YP needed. I can see that he is really settled where he is, really liked, and that he is encouraged to be the best that he can be in every respect."
Lucy McLachlan, IRO
|"Every time I visit Oak House, the staff are always friendly and willing to help me in any way they can. I know that D enjoys being there and feels safe."
Sandra, Former foster parent
|"James is an asset to Oak House and works in an excellent way to provide stability within the home. The difference it makes with a well organised manager to the team. For this reason, I have had no concerns with the work that the team and James are doing with E and D. At this point, I cannot say there are areas of improvement needed as there is excellent communication throughout the children’s care plan with the Local Authority."
John Dee, Social worker, Liverpool
|"M has had a significant improvement since being at Oak House. All the staff team have the skills and essential qualities needed to support young people with disabilities. The home supports M with every aspect of his life including his education and liaising with his team in school and the home provides great support and assistance for M."
Janna Lever, Parent
|"D said that he loves living at Oak House and he wants to stay there till he is 18."|
|"E said that his brother has gone into semi independence at 16 but he would like to stay at Oak House till he was 18 so that we can help him to get a job and earn a good living, so he can then move out and help his mum."|
