Each community home is different in its size, how it is run and how many young people live there. Each home has to have an up-to-date written statement of purpose of the home and how it is to be run. This must be kept in all homes and anyone (including you) can ask to see it.
If you would like to see an example of the welcome booklet for a residential home please click here.
Residential social workers are employed to work in these homes and the number of staff working can be different in each home. You will be encouraged by staff to have a say in how the home is run.
