We provide 24 hour one-2-one residential care within nurturing homely environments for a maximum of two children (per home) who have experienced adversity including relational and/or developmental trauma.
Solent are a small independent provider whose reputation with commissioners & educators has grown extensively since we launched in 2015 due to the emotional behavioural and educational attainment of our children. Click here for Testimonials.
Children stay at Solent, the relationship doesn’t ‘break down’ and they only move on when they are ready or when they are 18.
The wholehearted family culture we have created is often our children’s first experience of a nurturing, playful and consistent environment. From this foundation of safety and containment our children flourish through experiencing attuned relationships with our adults who trained in therapeutic parenting, attachment, trauma and DDP.
Through attuned sensitive relationships with the adults our children’s brains are rewired and repaired enabling them to focus on school, establish friendships and to build an internal working model that the world is a safe place and relationships can be trusted.
From a developing a sense of safety in their environment and trust in adults our children explore and experience activities particularly in nature and within our communities, this enables them to deepen their sense of self and belonging.
Many of our children have struggled at school and so being a registered centre with AQA (https://www.aqa.org.uk) provides our children with opportunities alongside the education system to be recognised for a wide range of skills again raising their self-esteem.
