Young people

Welcome to our Atkinson family. We know you may be feeling worried about coming to Atkinson, but we are not a prison; we are a children’s home and staff don’t wear uniforms.

Our role is to look after you and positively support you through this challenging time. You’ll meet young people from different backgrounds and cultures at Atkinson and you will be treated equally and cared for.

You may have concerns about why you or other young people have come to Atkinson. Whatever the reason, we’ll look after you and keep you safe. We want to make your stay with us as positive as we can.
