Additional Support Children's Residential Services
Worcestershire County Council Children’s Residential Service is
part of Children's Social Care, a component of Children’s Services.
The County Council is committed to improving outcomes and life
chances for children and young people.
Worcestershire County Council believes that children's homes can
offer an alternative, safe environment when children are unable to
live at home or in family settings and that residential care is a
positive placement choice for some young people.
