Ebble House is an established children’s home based in Salisbury, Wiltshire. The home is situated close to the city centre with excellent links to public transport, local support services, schools, colleges, events and activities.  

We plan every admission with clear objectives based on the needs of each individual young person. The emphasis is on positivity, promoting the strengths of everyone in our care regardless of past experiences or behaviour. In this, the team is supported and trained to deliver maximum opportunities within a therapeutic crisis intervention model.

“I am personally so proud of the work that you all do each and every day with our young people.”
Social worker, 2017

The team shares a mission: “Through providing a safe, homely environment which is filled with love, laughter and nurture, combined with consistent routines, we enable our young people to grow and develop, being supported to achieve their full potential while knowing they are valued and loved. We embrace the six elements of a therapeutic environment which are: playfulness, acceptance, love, curiosity, empathy and consistency.”

We give support, care and nurture to every child, with an integrated package of residential care, clinical intervention and education designed to help them overcome childhood experiences and trauma.

“The home remains a very homely environment. The dedication and commitment of the manager and her staff is evident in the thorough management of the home’s systems and the way the new admission has been helped to settle in so well.”
Regulation 44 inspector, 2018

During 2017, Ebble House achieved many positive outcomes, and in particular for two young people. The first, aged 17, successfully transitioned into semi-independent living. Due to the support and nurture he received during his six years with us, he is now in part-time work while continuing with his college course. The second, aged 11, successfully transitioned into a foster placement. This was only possible through the interventions put in place by Ebble House; they enabled him to self-regulate and talk through any difficulties, putting him on the right path to achieving this positive outcome.

“[Ebble House] works collaboratively with children’s placing authorities to help to achieve the best outcome for the child.”
