Treetops is our wonderful purpose-built facility which provides respite care for disabled children up to the age of 18
We are here to support you when and how you need it, whether your child simply comes for tea, spends a day with us or stays overnight. Treetops is open six days a week, 50 weeks of the year.
Great facilities and activities
It’s a social and fun environment where we strive to incorporate the ideas and wishes of the children to ensure that they are stimulated and enjoy their time with us. Parents can be rest assured that Treetops provides the best in terms of health and safety and we are regulated by Ofsted, and currently rated good.
Whilst at Treetops, the children socialise, explore and make the most of our accessible and specially adapted activity spaces, which include a sensory room, a large sensory garden and play area, chill out lounge, TV room and large adapted kitchen where the children are encouraged to develop their own life skills through cooking activities. If staying overnight, they’ll rest and sleep in one of the six themed single bedrooms that overlook our lovely garden.
Opportunities to get out and about
The children are also actively engaged in choosing activities they enjoy off-site. They are encouraged to engage in age-appropriate leisure activities that they might otherwise not be able to participate in.
