Children's Services

Nua Healthcare's children's services facilities are inspected and registered against ‘The National Standards for Children's Residential Centres’. The standards allow inspectors to form judgements surrounding the quality of service provision in each centre.

Nua Healthcare provides residential services and respite care to children and young people aged between 12 and 18, who present with highly complex and challenging needs in terms of their emotional, psychological and development of their well-being. These include children with learning disabilities, Autistic Spectrum Disorders and emotional and behavioural issues.

Our programmes are directed towards positive futures for the young people we care for. Where possible, we encompass a holistic approach towards working with the young person’s family and we aim to integrate them into the local community as a means to promoting not only their independence, but their social skills also.

Our guiding principle is and has always been, to provide care and education as an integrated support system within a framework of a small 'family' type home.  Our homes reflect that of a typical family home environment where children and young people feel safe and comfortable within a secure and friendly environment and where they are cared for in a child-centred approach from within a non-institutionalised setting.

Our residential facilities for children offer:

  • Individualised care and education packages
  • Short, medium or long-term placements
  • Emergency and planned admissions
  • Assessment services from our own Clinical Team
  • High Support and Challenging Behaviour services
