Local Offer


Welcome to Appletree Treatment Centre, we have worked with a number of local authorities nationwide helping them take care of the Health, Education and Care needs of girls and boys with emotional and learning difficulties. This is usually due to early traumatic experiences.

Our high staff ratios and experienced teams enable us to provide a structured, therapeutic, twenty-four hour programme which focuses on helping children to form positive relationships. These relationships enable the children to increase their self-esteem, which in turn allows them to acquire the skills which they need to succeed in school and at home. We do not exclude children so they experience emotional or 'felt' security.
