Cara House is located in the Roundhay area of North Leeds.
The house is a Victorian, 3 bed-roomed terraced property. It has good transport links as it is close to the M62 & M1 motorways and local rail and bus networks.
We aim to ensure that our house reflects that of a family home where young people feel safe, relaxed and cared for in a non-institutionalised setting.
The house is constantly being updated and refurbished and has a warm and modern feel providing a friendly and caring environment. On the ground floor there is a kitchen, dining room and living room.
On the first floor there is a small bathroom, an office/staff bedroom and a large sized bedroom. On the top floor there is the young people’s bathroom and two further good sized bedrooms.
We also have a cellar which is used for laundry and storage.
Outside there is a small garden to the front and a small courtyard to the rear.
Each young person has their own bedroom where there is privacy and space to do their schoolwork. Young people are given a key for their room and encouraged to take responsibility for their own space.
Each young person’s bedroom is warm and bright and we encourage all those who come and live with us to bring their own personal possessions to make their bedroom feel their own and take ownership of their surroundings.
The staff team ensure that the environment of the home is maintained to a high standard and young people are encouraged to help with jobs to keep the communal areas clean and tidy.
Young people are encouraged to use the kitchen for the preparation of food.
All young people residing at Cara House can be educated at Eden Park Academy, Leeds, West Yorkshire.
