Hillcrest offer a pathway to fostering via our specialist fostering agency Sunflower Fostering who are part of Outcomes First Group. Sunflower Fostering specialise in placing young people that have experienced disruption in their lives and require stable and consistent family environments.
The agency is unique in the way they offer a pathway placement to ensure consistency and stability for each child in their care.
The service benefits from an in-house clinical team who provide bespoke training and support to foster carers and therapeutic support to young people in foster placement.
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.
