Ferndearle has two residential homes, both of which are based in Folkestone, Kent and which are within five minute walking distance of each other. This allows for them to operate individually as a home but close enough to be able to join together and to feel part of the same Therapeutic Community. We have a specialist School that is situated across both sites and is registered by the DfE as an SEBD provision.
We take pride in the appearance of our homes, and ensure all of them are decorated to a standard that we would be happy for our own families to live in.
Children’s voices are heard and respected, we always ensure they feel empowered to make decisions in the running of the home where appropriate.
We work hard to ensure that children are happy and comfortable in their home, and that it is treated as exactly that, a home, not a unit.
