Across the UK, the number of looked-after children has been steadily increasing, with a 2% rise to 80,080 in England alone during the year to March 2020. Providing high-quality care and support for young people with complex needs can help improve their resilience and skills, to ease the transition into adulthood. For children with the highest level of need, residential placements are often more appropriate than foster placements.


New Reflexions is a leading children’s residential care provider based in Shropshire, offering residential placements and specialist education. It works with young people with complex needs whom the state has deemed require care away from their families, providing placements that combine care, education, and therapy. The residential care provider helps to build individuals’ resilience and facilitate a pathway of opportunities for their future.


New Reflexions continues to provide quality care to young people with complex needs, delivering over 18,500 days of care to young people in 2021 and working with an average of 52 young people. 50% of its eligible services are now rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted, testament to the quality of its provision.
