Where is Green Fields, and what’s the house like?
Green Fields is a spacious dormer bungalow set on the outskirts of Little Common, a small town near the sea in East Sussex. The large garden with a range of fruit trees backs onto open farm land and then the sea.
The home has 4 bedrooms and can support two young people form the age of 11 years to 18 years, each young person has their own room and has a generous budget to personalise it to their own taste, a large lounge diner looks out onto the garden as do the conservatory and sun room with views over the marsh to the sea, with the larger town of Eastbourne in the distance.
From everybody here at Green Fields and at Anderida, we want to welcome you, and help you make this your new home. Throughout this guide you will find some of the information that you need in order to make your time with us as rewarding and beneficial as possible.
At Green Fields we aim to help you achieve your goals, these may be:
· Getting back into education
· Developing into independence
· Moving back into your family home
· Settling into a community
· Finding employment
· Managing your behaviour
· Coping better with problems
· Staying out of trouble!
· Feeling happier within yourself
To do this we will develop a Support Plan with your goals. These goals will be discussed with you during meetings in order for you to feel that they are relevant to your needs. You will meet with your social worker on a regular basis to discuss how you are getting on and to plan for the future.
We also work closely with leaving care teams in order that all moves into independence are planned and successful.
