Children’s residential respite (Ofsted registered)

Aspens offers Ofsted registered children's residential respite care at our residence in Falconwood, Bexley.

With nine beds available, we provide overnight breaks to children and young people with learning disabilities, autism or mental health needs aged between 5-17 years.

Children and young people can access Falconwood via a referral from the London Borough of Bexley Children’s Team. Following a social work assessment the case is taken to panel where an appropriate short break is identified for the child.

Falconwood supports children and young persons to socialise with their peers and make new friends. As their confidence builds we offer opportunities which will broaden their horizons, build on existing skills and nurture their emerging skills enhancing their independence.

We also offer social and fun youth groups such as after-school clubs and Saturday clubs for children and young people aged 5 yrs to 17 yrs.

Ofsted rating: GOOD
