The very first time I visited (Hillcrest The Laurels) I felt I wanted to live there myself… In my opinion, this is one of the best children’s homes I have come across in over 10 years!

I can see from my last visit that R appeared really settled and calm which is impressive in such a short period of time…R’s mother has also provided some feedback saying how impressed she is with how the staff support R...I have nothing but positive praise to provide and Villa Farm is probably the best residential home I have worked with.

I want to say a big thank you for all the support, care, sensitivity and teaching you have provided to MM. I want to say that, honestly you are such an outstanding placement and have supported me also as MM’s social worker. Thank you so much for all your hard work and supporting MM to get to the place he is today
