Bournville is a two bedded home for young people aged between eight and eighteen years old.
Bournville is situated in a quiet area of Tiverton near a park and BMX track. Bournville has a large living/dining room with Sky TV, kitchen and two bedrooms for the young people which can be decorated to their choice. We have a small secluded garden where we sit and have meals when the weather is good, we also enjoy having BBQs.
Young people who live at Bournville say we have a lovely staff team, where every member of staff works to create a family environment with clear boundaries. We have lots of different games and craft making equipment as well as a good selection of DVDs.
Here at Bournville we encourage young people to have fun and be active, there are many activities to do and Bournville is a fun place to be. There is an excellent leisure centre, with swimming pool, and we encourage young people to join in a variety of organised activities and clubs that the local area has to offer. We will try our hardest if the young person has a specific interest or hobby, to find it around the area so that they can continue to enjoy and achieve in their chosen pursuit.
Bournville is a place where we do not accept bullying. There is always a member of staff on duty including in the night. If any young person has a problem or worry there is always a member of staff to listen to you.
