We are SO proud of the efforts of all of our staff team during the Covid-19 Pandemic, who have worked exceptionally hard to maintain the high standards of care, education and therapeutic support for our young people, whilst at the same time keeping everyone as safe as we can. It’s not been easy for them, but thankfully we have not had any cases of Covid-19 at our Home or School.

It’s not been easy for our young people either, who have been in isolation for a large part of the time since March 2020, but they have, on the whole, approached this with a positive attitude.

We have a Covid Team who are meeting regularly to review the Government guidelines and ensure that we are up-to-date and able to plan our business accordingly.

We have been able to keep our Community spirit, even though we have had to adapt our working practices to keep everyone safe.

A huge THANK YOU to our amazing staff and young people.

What We Do

We are a Residential Children's Home and also an Independent Special School. For information on our School, please refer to the Glebe House School tab at the top of this page or see the link at the bottom right hand side of this page.

Our charitable Trust provides specialist interventions for young men (between the ages of 15 and 18 at point of referral) with a known history of harmful sexual behaviours.

Our case services include:

  • Residential Treatment Service to address harmful behaviour in older teenagers
  • An Independence Transition Service
  • Training and Consultancy
  • Community based assessment and intervention work
  • SEN Provision

The Friends Therapeutic Community Trust (FTCT) was established in the late 1960s in response to the concerns of a Quaker Probation Officer. He had not been able to find an appropriate residential resource where intensive work with troubled young men took place. Now the focus is working with sexually harmful and challenging behaviour and we have acknowledged expertise of working with young men in this area.

The Therapeutic model of: Democracy, Communalism, Tolerance and Reality Confrontation inform practice and the Quaker testimonies of: Equality, Truth, Peace and Simplicity are core to the thinking of our Trustees who are Quakers.

The Trust always strives to ensure our fees are competitive in a changing world of commissioning and contracting practices.
