We have taken the difficult decision to close the residential and day school provision for children at Broomhayes Centre and develop a smaller adult focused service.
We have faced some financial challenges at Broomhayes over the last few years. A fall in child referrals and the ageing of those currently being cared for have seen the centre become much more adult-focused.
The day school provision will close in February 2014. A date for the closure of the children’s residential home is yet to be agreed.
We know that this is unsettling news and would like to assure all those connected to the centre that we are committed to ensuring the best possible outcomes for them.
We are in the process of agreeing plans for the new adult service, and we will update the website as soon as they are finalised.
