Therapeutic care for young people who have experienced childhood trauma

Kites Children’s Services exists to help boys with sexual development problems.

We work hard to help these young people develop into confident, safe young adults who make a positive contribution to wider society.

Kites is the first port of call for local authorities that may lack relevant specialist care services – and which need a cost-effective service that achieves positive outcomes for young people.

We provide a fully integrated service across the care continuum for young people aged 12-17.

An integrated approach to care

Our integrated approach is effective because it brings together different strands of care, which are shaped to each individual’s needs. They are:

  • Residential care for young people with sexual development issues
  • Education and personal development in our own specialist school, when mainstream education is not yet appropriate
  • Therapy – this is central to our whole approach and helps the young people in our care achieve goals such as happiness, creativity and intimacy in both meaningful and socially acceptable ways
  • Aftercare – ensuring that young people get the best possible start to their adult lives

Please browse our site to learn how we help young people, and if you would like to learn more about our service please contact us today or call 01702 214524.
