Eastways provides accommodation and care for up to six young people between the ages of 8-18 years of either gender. Eastways provides care for young people with a wide range of needs. These will include mild to moderate learning difficulties, emotional and behavioural difficulties.
All young people are treated as individuals, caring for their unique needs and taking into account their religion, race, culture, disability, sexual orientation and gender.
Eastways Children’s Home is situated adjacent to the beach in a small coastal village in north Norfolk. There are some excellent walks, stunning coastal scenery and several superb historic churches in the area, including those at Edingthorpe and Trunch.
At Eastways we believe that the young people we look after should not just be well cared for, but also feel cared about. We believe that expressing authentic warmth and unconditional positive regard is important when helping young people achieve their potential.
Our goal is to create an environment where young people can feel safe and begin to recover from the difficult experiences and disruption they have experienced in their lives and to help them achieve individual success, maximising their life chances.
We will treat each young person as an individual, recognising their unique needs.
We will take into account each young person’s ethnicity and diversity, sexual orientation and gender in how we care for them.
We also recognise and appreciate that most young people have strong opinions about how they want to be cared for; they want to be heard and we intend to incorporate their positive ideas into the way we care for them. Our approach to caring for young people will encompass the Quality Standards (as set out in the Children’s Home Regulations 2015). We will ensure that our services are delivered in such a manner that we actively promote each young person’s health, safety and enjoyment.
We strive to turn out well balanced adults who can make a positive contribution into society, while enjoying their own satisfying lives.
Economic well-being, ethnicity and diversity are also promoted. Throughout their stay at Eastways, we will endeavour to encourage and support our young people to become as independent as possible, at a pace that is comfortable and realistic for them.
