Kites Children's Services caring for young people with HSB.

Therapeutic care for young people who have experienced childhood trauma.

Everything we do is about improving the lives of children who have experienced trauma and have sexual development difficulties.

Through our nurturing, safe environment coupled with joined up therapeutic interventions, children who stay with us are helped to understand their past and go on to develop strong and meaningful relationships

Who we are

We operate two residential homes and an independent school in Essex for young males who have experienced trauma and who have sexual development difficulties.

"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."
