Hillside House opened in 2017, registered to provide care for looked after children with Emotional, Behavioural Difficulties aged between 12yrs – 18yrs of age of mixed gender. The home is a 5 bedroom detached property situated in Nottingham, a short walk from the Jubilee Campus at Nottingham University.
The home is located in a community that offers good local amenities, including a doctor’s surgery, chemist, café, hair dressers, news-agents and a local bus service. There is a park and playing fields within a short walk from the home. Wollaton Hall, deer park and gardens, Nottingham Castle Museum and Art Gallery, Nottingham Theatre Royal, Rock City and the Nottingham Motor Point Arena are all nearby.
Hillside House has a small, friendly and welcoming staff team who enjoy arranging and participating in outings and family visits. We have a house car but as a team we try and encourage the use of public transport as much as possible in order to encourage and promote independence and confidence in getting to know the local area, with staff supervision if necessary.
