WELCOME TO HORIZONS EDUCARE LTD
All places at Horizons Educare are offered on the basis of an assessment to identify the young person’s needs and our capacity to meet those needs. Most young people placed at our homes will have experienced previous placements in foster homes or children’s homes prior to admission. Young people referred to Horizons Educare may have experienced some social, emotional and/or behavioural problems. They may also have a history of offending, self-harming or sexual exploitation. Certain young people may have experienced abusive situations and may be deemed to be at risk of physical and /or emotional harm.
We recognise that certain of the young people we work with may be at different stages of emotional and physical development, regardless of their age. During the assessment process we establish each young person’s functioning age, abilities and interests so that we can then provide age appropriate activities and experiences. We will always aim to provide differentiation in experiences that is appropriate to the age and ability of each young person.
