Residential Care and Education

Most young people referred to the Libra School for Residential Care and Education have experienced a combination of traumatic episodes and have suffered physical, severe emotional and sexual abuse and or neglect. Such problems have often been compounded by multiple placements and unsuccessful attempts to foster and have resulted in extensive disruption to a young person's education and or care. In addition under-achievement, non school attendance, involving in criminal (often destructive) behaviour and little or no regard for boundaries are often characteristic of referrals.
