Lake Road is Solent's newest home and we have carefully chosen it's location to provide a safe, urban environment.

Children living at Lake Road will have easy access to local amenities such as shops, clubs, and schools and they will be encouraged to develop their independence skills as appropriate.

The home is ideally placed for children to benefit from a diverse range of nearby activities, both within the beautiful new forest and the nearby coastal towns.

The home itself is a modern, beautifully decorated 4-bedroom bungalow where we will welcome two children to live with us at any one time. Children living at Lake Road will have their own bedroom whilst also enjoying a sleek and modern kitchen diner, a cosy lounge, an additional playroom, and a large garden. A small, motivated and diverse group of adults will support our children with love, nurture, and play to ensure they thrive whilst living at Lake Road.
