Compton was established in 2012 and is in an urban, residential area close to the centre of the City of Plymouth. Our location affords us excellent opportunities for a wide range of recreational and educational activities both in Plymouth and in the wider community.

We have our own vehicle but we are also in close proximity to the bus routes into the city centre and the railway station, providing services nationwide.

Compton aims to deliver a nurturing environment that promotes positive attitudes and achieves successful outcomes. Our young people are supported by a well trained, caring staff team from diverse cultural backgrounds who value diversity and difference.

The house facilities include two large individual bedrooms, a large communal lounge area and a well equipped kitchen. There is a garden with ample space for barbecues or simply to relax. A filtered desktop computer is available to the young people in the lounge which is  remotely monitored.

The house and facilities are maintained to a high standard giving our young people the foundation and safe environment vital to help raise their self esteem and feel genuinely valued.

Local facilities include: Plymouth Life Centre, Mount Batten Water Sports Centre, the Adrenaline Quarry and The Plymouth Aquarium to name but a few.
