Residential children's home

Every day, 90 children are taken into care across the UK. The most vulnerable members of our society are being failed by a system that leaves them with very limited life chances and poor outcomes. We exist because every child has a right to grow in a supportive and caring environment. We support children who are in local authority care and young people who are leaving care and transitioning to independence by providing high quality accommodation and positive life experiences.

Home: Welcome


Raise House Limited is a residential children's home inspired by the life of Raymond Christopher Collett and his experience of being a child in care in the UK. Our Children’s home was set up in his memory to provide a family environment for three children and young people between the ages of 11-18 to be cared for and supported. Through our high quality accommodation service, we work to improve the life chances of both males and females with social, emotional and behavioural needs. Operating fifty-two weeks of the year, we also meet the needs of those who require a period of intensive support, with a high level of personalised care.
