"Woodlands have been absolutely brilliant.  They have really invested in my young person have seen him through some really tough times and have given him a sense of identity and hope for the future."

A Welcome from the Director

Darryl Williams


"I started Woodlands 22 years ago, partly because, as a Social Work Manager, I was tired of placing young people in “average” children’s homes.  The first house was purchased in December 1998 and the first young person, David, arrived in April 1999. 


In all this time we have grown very slowly, and we won’t get any bigger! as Woodlands is, in some ways, like a really big family, but small enough to care."
