Holly House opened in February 2015 and provides a caring, comfortable and supporting environment for up to 5 young people (EBD). The home is situated on a main road that leads into Chesterfield town centre (approx 1 mile away), which is a short walk away. Alternatively it also has good transport links via bus. Chesterfield, although a town, has a lot to offer for example cinema, skate park, bowling alley, leisure centres and parks etc… and if you wish to venture further afield we are approx 30 minutes away from Sheffield (Meadowhall & Crystal Peaks) and Nottingham, via car.

“Thank you for the tour and accommodating my visit. The home has clearly had a significant investment made by G4S. Really positive from my perspective and good to see a quality home in the heart of Derbyshire. Good luck with your opening and look forward to working with you in the future”
“I love living here. I am with people that understand me. They give me time and listen. There is nothing that I would change here”.
“Since I have lived here I am much healthier. My anger has improved and I have better contact with my family. I have more confidence about my life”.
