At the Birchwood Centre there are eight single bedrooms and two move on flats. These flats allow young people to experience some aspects of living independently whilst still having the support of the staff at the Centre. We call this Semi-Independent Living. There is always a dedicated Move On Worker at the Centre.
In most cases, young people will live in the Centre for a period of time before they move over to one of these flats. However, as we believe in tailoring our services to the needs of the individual concerned, some young people may move straight from the Centre in to their own property in the community if we feel they are ready.
