Pebbles’ Growth Plan: Setting Up 2024 for Success!

We are extremely proud to announce that we recently finalised the acquisition of BDT Care Solutions as part of our continued commitment to supporting children and young people in care to develop and flourish.

With a total of four nurturing homes in the peaceful countryside of Scotland, from single occupancy to four-bed residencies, BDT shares the same view as Pebbles that every child is unique and deserves an individualised approach to overcome their traumatic experiences and thrive. Their trauma-informed care is anchored in a therapeutic practice, strongly aligning with our provision, where therapeutic parenting is at the core of everything that we do.

BDT was acquired with the aim of supporting more children and young people across the country who need a safe and loving space to call home.

Alongside this extraordinary acquisition, Pebbles is also opening two new homes this year. One is a single occupancy in Leeds that is in proximity to two of our existing homes (Willow and Emerald houses) which are currently managed by our dedicated Registered Manager Hayley Bell, who will take the helm of managing the new home as well. The other is a two-bed residency in Pontefract, Yorkshire.

It is also a very exciting time for Pebbles in terms of our education provision, as we are looking to expand our service to England, with plans to open a new school in the North East by the end of 2024, and another in the North West in early 2025. The expansion will enable more young people to benefit from our ground-breaking Adapt Learning model, which has already transformed the learning journeys of the pupils attending our two Scottish schools.

Chris Strong, our CEO, commented on our growth plans, saying:

“We are excited to welcome BDT Care Solutions into the Pebbles family to help extend our reach of providing safe and loving spaces for children and young people to call home.

“We are fully committed to supporting and developing our existing teams and alongside the acquisition of BDT, the opening of our new homes and expansion of our education provision provides lots of new career opportunities for our teams.

“We look forward to continuing our mission of leading the way in bespoke, therapeutic care and education for children and young people into 2024 and beyond.”

Our offering will soon include 51 loving homes and four independent schools across Scotland and England, cementing our position as a leading provider of therapeutic and bespoke residential childcare and education in the UK. This marks the beginning of a fantastic year where both our young people and employees will continue to grow and achieve astonishing outcomes.
