Feeling Safe

Developmental Trauma & Self-soothing

Managing Anxiety

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

Social Worker

Myself, Manager and IRO are so impressed with the care he is getting and how much progress he has made despite all that he has been through.

Social Worker

My colleague and I have been very impressed with the resilience and empathy of the staff team and especially the manager, who is very proactive in working with us to meet the needs identified in the Care Plan. Aqueduct have been very flexible regarding contact and have gone out of their way to make this work for the young person. The therapeutic input is excellent…We really couldn’t be happier with the service provided by Hillcrest at this time.
