WOOD VIEW SHORT BREAK SERVICE CHILDREN'S HOME

The Wood View Short Break Service, is a registered Children’s Home, providing high standards of care and support to children from Plymouth and beyond. Many of the children who come to Wood View have complex care needs and we support them to enjoy the company of their peers and develop their social skills in a safe environment.

Wood View accommodates children between the ages of 3 – 18, offering overnight accommodation for up to 6 children and young people at one time. We also provide day care support for children as part of a transitional programme.

We currently have two vacancies based in our state of the art building in Whitleigh. Our links with Woodlands Special School gives us access to superb facilities including: outdoor play areas and gardens, a fully-hoisted dance studio and a stunning hydro pool.

If you are interested in joining us then why not come along to our open afternoon on Monday 14th May from noon until 4:00pm. Please call 01752 300101 to register.
