Osbourne is a warm and welcoming home with a friendly family environment, staffed by experienced and caring residential childcare workers.

We strive to create a safe, happy and flourishing household for our young people and hold their educational, personal and health needs as paramount.

Our commitment to our young people is evidenced by our staff’s level of commitment to the young people, the excellent working practices and also the team approach to childcare. For young people placed at Osbourne, the house is more of a home than a stereotypical ‘care unit’. We aim to develop our youngsters, no matter how unstable their childhood or background may be.

The house itself is located on the edge of Barnstaple town, close enough to all the local amenities but far away enough that it is a peaceful and quiet location.

‘Osbourne is a home where young people flourish ‘


The property is a three floor building, with three ample sized bedrooms for our young people to stay in. We have adequate lounge and dining room areas, and a well fitted kitchen leading out to a back garden area on the ground floor.

Local parks, swimming pools, beaches and seaside resorts means there is always something to do for our young people.

We aim to give our young people the enjoyable, happy and healthy childhood that they all deserve. The location of the home means that days out in the sun, and physical activities can be an everyday occurrence in the holiday seasons.

In summary, Osbourne is staffed with dedicated professionals who are committed to not only caring for the young Persons basic needs, but to developing them in all aspects of their life.

The location is ideal for days out, but also homely and friendly enough that ‘days in’ can be filled with cooking, arts or crafts based activities, or just a night in watching a film together. We hold the interests and safety of our young people above all else, and Osbourne is the perfect example of an outstanding care home.

Managed and staffed by caring, understanding and professional team members who will go the extra mile for children in care.
