About Us

Welcome to Clare Lodge

Clare Lodge is a leading national provider of "welfare" placements (Children Act 1989.

Typically those placed have extensive histories of abuse and exploitation, poor attachments, and low self esteem. Many of the young women have a range of health / mental needs and exhibit complex behaviours which may include running away, self-harm, exploitation, psycho-sexual difficulties, issues concerning drug and alcohol misuse, eating disorders, aggression and other challenging behaviours.

Clare Lodge provides: 

  • Psychological / psychiatric assessment and therapeutic input
  • Reports for the Court
  • Health screening and assessment
  • Drug and alcohol advice / counselling
  • Sexual health advice / counselling
  • Art therapy
  • Evaluation and behaviour intervention programmes
  • Full educational programme to National Curriculum / GCSE Standard
  • Streamlined / fast referral / placement arrangements

Referral / placement processes are user friendly with no lengthy forms to complete. In most cases decisions are notified to the prospective placing social worker on an immediate basis.

Fees are fully inclusive of all care, education, health and other specialist input. Fees are reviewed annually at the start of each financial year.  For details of our current placement availability please click on the 'Referrals & Downloads' tab at the top of the page or speak to the Duty Manager on 01733 253246.
