Auton Residential Children's Homes are part of St Cuthberts Care, a charity working
for the common good by enabling people to develop to their personal potential.
Welcome to Auton Children's Residential Homes
St Cuthberts Care currently operates a number of children’s residential homes across the region; with two homes based in Newcastle, one in Sunderland and one in Darlington. Each of our homes are modern and have been refurbished to a high standard, enabling us to accommodate both boys and girls aged from 8 to 17 years, who have emotional or behavioural problems.
Our homes offer support to children who have experienced multiple placement breakdowns and who need a period of stability; children who are in transition from foster care before a move back to their birth family and children who need a long-term residential placement.
We also provide accommodation and assistance to young people who are in transition from social care to independent living. We make everyone feel welcome when they arrive, ensuring that individuals become a valued member of the group.
We aim to work with the children in our care to support them in making their own decisions about their lives, and to teach them how to replace negative, often self-destructive behaviour patterns with alternative methods of coping.
We encourage young people at Auton to recognise their own strengths, individuality and potential for development and independence.
We promote and safeguard the education and health of young people in our care and provide them with opportunities to engage and interact with other members of the community to develop social skills, independence and self-esteem.
