Welcome to Dove Adolescent Services

We provide flexible, individual care packages for children and young people. We believe in transforming lives by being passionate, innovative and invested in everything we do.

A loyal community of caring homes.

Our network of small multi-occupancy homes and single occupancy Specialist Resource Units give us the flexibility to support vulnerable children of different backgrounds and needs.

Our people, experience and approach to care are what make us stand out from other providers.

We accept referrals from both local authorities and independent providers of care services for young people, male or female, usually aged between eight and seventeen. Typically they have a complex history and multiple needs.

100% of our inspected services are rated good or outstanding by Ofsted

“I just wanted to say thank you for everything. If someone had of told me when I first moved in that it’d be this hard to move I most likely would have laughed, but here we are eighteen months on. If it weren’t for the home and the staff team I wouldn’t have grown, so thank you for putting up with me through thick and thin. I don’t think I have ever felt so honoured to know a group of people and although I don’t say it, I really do love you guys and you’ll always have a place in my heart”.
