Dickson House is a detached house with its own garden.
The home has a variety of spacious communal areas including a play room with access to computers and games, a TV lounge, a dining room and a kitchen. It also has a family bathroom, a separate toilet and a utility room, where young people can learn to wash their own clothes.
The home has six bedrooms, one for each of the young people living in Dickson House, a staff office and a staff sleep-in room for the on-duty employee each evening.
The North Flat has three bedrooms, one for the young person, one which is used as a staff office and one which is a staff bedroom. It also has a spacious lounge/dining room and kitchen.
Each young person’s room in both Dickson House and the North Flat includes a suitable bed and bedding, desk and seating, storage for clothes and a secure door lock to ensure personal possessions are safe. This door lock ensures that entry from the outside is only permitted with a key but can be opened as normal from the inside. Children are not required to share bedrooms, and young residents are encouraged to personalise their rooms, to create an environment similar to their own home.
