A specialist approach built on safety, support and stability
Elmbank Trauma Centre is located in a rural location in the North East of England. The integrated provision, which comprises both a learning centre and children’s home, accommodates up to 5 young people - all of whom are female and have experienced trauma.
The typical length of placement is between 12 to 18 months, during which time each young person follows a highly personalised and structured treatment pathway that identifies key milestones enabling progress to be recognised and, importantly, celebrated.
Following the successful completion of the treatment programme, young people will often step-down to one of our other settings or return to their home communities, dependent upon their circumstances.
Most young people are likely to be traumatised due to child sexual exploitation (CSE), compounded in some cases by other traumatic experiences such as neglect, and physical and domestic violence. Traumatic experiences mean that these young people are very vulnerable, with substance abuse, self-harm, depression, challenging behaviour, low self-esteem, and sleep and eating disorders often being common.
