Residential Provision continued
We have numerous vehicles to allow trips far and wide and we also make use of public transport to ensure young people have all the learning possibilities open to them. Activities are tailored to the young person, so the list is literally endless and can include cinema, discos, climbing wall, bike rides, shopping in local cities, Derby County Football Club, swimming, gym, etc. We also ensure young people have access to a holiday at some point in their stay; from Butlins to Center Parcs, Camping in the Peak District to outward bound at Bockleton Activity Centre.
We are committed to ensuring that no young person is stopped from experiencing and enjoying their childhood because of barriers their disability may put in their way.
It is essential that the young people we care for have a voice and have a say in how the home is run. Their Key Worker has an essential role in acting as their advocate and ensuring their views are made known. To support the Key Worker in this role we also use the services of Derbyshire Children ’ s Rights team to act as independent advocates when required. In addition to this staff organise regular house meetings to ensure the young person ’ s voice is heard. The ethos of Pegasus School and Children ’ s Home is our individualised approach. Every element of the care package is bespoke to that individual; whether that be the number of nights they stay, their specific routine, the input from professional services, diet, cultural and religious preferences, etc. The nature of the establishment having education and care in one building with onsite professional support services gives the opportunity to build a multi - disciplinary package around the young person.
