Home from Home

Stanmore House School Residential and Short Breaks service provides a friendly, welcoming home from home for many children and young people aged 5-19 with complex support needs.

Working in close partnership with the school, we support disabled children andyoung people with a variety of residential placements.  We also provide short breaks and respite to up to four children and young people per night.

Specially adapted accommodation

Our specially adapted accommodation is ideally suited for young people with the most complex needs.  We offer individual bedrooms fitted with environmental controls and the young people who stay with us enjoy access to our sensory room and games areas, which is equipped with all the latest games and consoles. We have spacious grounds and a BBQ area and summer house which we use during the summer months.

We are fully committed to providing a Getting it Right For Every Child (GIRFEC) approach focussing on the well-being outcomes for individual young people.


Scott's story

Eleven year old Scott enjoys life as a resident in one of Stanmore House School’s residential bungalows.  During the day Scott attends school at Stanmore. Once the school day has ended staff from the residential service support him to take part in activities in the local community.

Scott’s Mum Sandra says that Stanmore’s residential service has not only helped Scott, but has benefitted the rest of the family too.  

She said: “The high level of support offered to Scott by the residential team at Stanmore is fantastic.  When he was it home it was difficult to balance family life with 
Scott’s needs.  If he wasn’t constantly occupied he got frustrated which in turn affected his behaviour.  At Stanmore he has the opportunity to get involved in lots of different, stimulating activities. The children and young people are always out and about and that’s really good for Scott.  It gives me peace of mind to know he is so happy and so settled.”
