The Orchard


The Orchard is an established large, country house on the outskirts of Taunton.
  • Age: 11 – 18
  • Capacity: Up to 4
  • Gender: Female & Male
The Orchard is a 4 bedroom residential therapeutic community for male and females, 11 – 18, which has access to our clinical services which deliver targeted focused interventions.
Practitioners at the Orchard work with young people who may have experienced significantly poor attachment, neglect and emotional/other abuse.
It may be that having reached the point of being brought into the looked-after system some time ago they may now not be coping in fostering placements.  It is possible that they might be out of education or not having activities that they can enjoy (or that are likely to bring positive outcomes).
The Orchard has had good results in working with these types of challenging behaviours and seeks to transform young people’s lives through evidenced based clinical interventions and therapeutic care to ensure their recovery from neglect, abuse and trauma.
