Kenilworth House is the “Transitional Home” providing opportunities to progress through many stages of development. Particular attention is given to the Pathways and Preparation for life Post Care. Some young people with specific, emotional well-being needs require our most nurturing style to feel they can gain an Independent Life.
Kenilworth is in a city helping our young people build the skills and confidences to cope in such environments in a safe and positive way. The home is just enough distance away from the hustle and bustle to give it a quieter feel. We help young people seek and find education, training and apprenticeship provisions. We also encourage employment and recreational opportunities.
It is a happy, healthy, safe home for all to: grow, develop, thrive and achieve. A “homely environment” that “keeps it real” including making mistakes and learning from them, and getting young people ready for life after they leave us.
We work closely with Therapeutic and Pathways Provisions to ensure we allow our young people the best opportunities. This is our underlying belief for building relationships and for positive outcomes:
“We are their next chance, maybe their last chance to be welcomed, understood and accepted, and that for a person to grow they need an environment that provides them with genuineness (open-ness and self-disclosure), acceptance (being seen with unconditional positive regard), and empathy (being listened to and understood), without these, relationships and healthy personalities will not develop. Our young people can achieve their goals, wishes and desires if the important people in their life help them”
