Therapeutic care for young people who sexually harm

Everything we do is about improving the lives of children who have experienced trauma and have sexually harmed. By creating a supportive environment coupled with joined up therapeutic interventions, our children develop safe and meaningful relationships and are helped to understand their past.

Who we are

Kites Children's Services operate two residential homes and an independent school in Essex for young males who have sexually harmed.

About Kites Children's Services

What we do

We provide a range of services for young people who sexually harm, including schooling, therapy, residential care, support with family and more.


Our Homes

Our two residential homes provide a secure family feel home for our young people and are 6 bedroom and 5 bedroom homes respectively.


Our School

Our school is a small specialist school with provision for up to 10 pupils, the vast majority being placed from within the organisation’s children’s homes.


Therapeutic approach

We believe that therapy can only fully take place when each young person has a continual experience of being valued, respected, cared for, and safe.

"The residential home was the best. I loved the atmosphere, the activities, the karaoke nights. Christmas Day was brilliant – so many presents. I also really liked Estuary High school – liked the teaching and having my own desk."
