Felix's Story

“The future looks bright and promising for the young man who continues to make strides in his personal development.”

29 April 2021

Felix's Story

After suffering neglect and witnessing domestic violence, as well as gang related crimes within the family home, Felix was placed in care, and after multiple placement breakdowns due to his aggressive and defiant behaviours, his journey to Beech Tree Children’s Home began.

Support

The little boy that joined the home craved attention and this was instantly recognised by staff
who put in place boundaries and expectations of behaviours to allow Felix to settle into his new home. Unsurprisingly he did not have trusting relationships with adults and therefore it was important to invest time in this, to help him feel at ease and also develop much needed self-esteemand awareness. A full support plan was devised with emphasis on therapy and support around attachment issues and trauma, to help the young boy thrive at home and at school.

Achievement

A break through moment for Felix? There have been plenty from making new friends and accessing a range of activities at the local youth zone to joining an arcade club where he engages with other young people with similar interests. The little boy that struggled to sleep has a good bed time routine demonstrating that that he feels more secure and settled at Beech Tree.

As Felix prepares to transition to secondary school, the future looks bright and promising for the young man who continues to make strides in his personal development thanks to his loyal and unwavering support network; the staff team at Beech Tree Children’s Home.
