Hinton Wood

Ferndown, Dorset

Hinton wood is a large detached home located in the small rural town of Ferndown, the home can accommodate up to six children/ young people of mixed gender aged between 10 – 18 years and is run in partnership with Drset Council.


Hinton wood provides a high standard of care to children and young people formally accommodated by their local authority. The young people may have previously experienced trauma within lives and or been exposed to harm.

Our team aim to provide a homely environment where everyone is made to feel welcomed; the team strive to make happy memories by providing a safe environment where the children/ young people feel comfortable and stable in their surroundings.

The children and young people are highly involved in their day to day living, care plans and the home its self, implementing and promoting a partnership between the children, young people and the team.

At Hinton wood we believe that it is never too late, that children/ young people should be given the tools, time and experiences to achieve, explore and progress within themselves and ultimately through these experience have the ability to understand their behaviours, developing  strategies to cope when they are faced with difficulties within their life.

We have a staffing team made up of 10 highly skilled team members consisting of the Registered Manager, Practice Manager, 6 full time and two part time Residential Childcare Practitioners .
