Whispers Cottage is situated in the grounds of Whispers House in Heysham, Lancashire. Whispers Cottage is a solo occupancy bungalow providing a 2:1 staff ratio.
We aim to ensure that our house reflects that of a family home where the young person feels safe, relaxed and cared for in a non institutionalised setting. The young person has their own bedroom where there is privacy and space to do schoolwork. The 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 the young person is encouraged to help with jobs to keep all areas clean and tidy. The Young people are encouraged to use the kitchen for the preparation of food. Whispers Cottage has two bedrooms one for the young person resident and one for staff. There is a kitchen with modern utilities and a separate lounge with a computer area
