Where is Eucalyptus Grove, and what’s the house like?
Eucalyptus Grove is two one bedroom homes. It has a lovely, big shared garden with its own pond and a really cool garden room that’s great for chilling out in.
It’s near a seaside town in East Sussex called Eastbourne. Eastbourne is pretty famous for getting more sun than any other place in mainland Britain, with a whopping 1,750 hours a year worth of sunshine. Not only that; it’s the warmest too! There’s loads to do in Eastbourne and the surrounding area. The beach, sports centres, sports courts, clubs; loads of countryside for outdoor activities too. We are a half an hour journey from Brighton and an hour or so down the road from London, so there’s great venturing-out possibilities, too!
From everybody here at Eucalyptus Grove and at Anderida, we want to welcome you, and help you make this your new home.
At Eucalyptus Grove 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.
