North East Lincolnshire Council

Residential care homes

North East Lincolnshire Council looks after approximately 300 young people at any one time. The vast majority of these are accommodated in foster care. About 9% of these live in Children’s Homes run by the Local Authority. North East Lincolnshire Council has always sought to look after its children within their local community. Our aim is for children only aged 10 years and older to be admitted to these placements. Its five mainstream homes are based in various locations in Cleethorpes and Grimsby, providing 16 beds. In addition there are also two smaller locations that provide care for up to six disabled children, whom are looked after on a full time basis, [also see Short Break Services and Cromwell House].

For safety reasons the locations of these facilities are not publicly advertised or disclosed. If you require further information on our residential services please contact the Childcare Resources Service using the contact details provided.

Residential Respite Services

North East Lincolnshire Council provides a three bed respite home for children that may need a break to assist and support their families and carers in keeping the family unit together. In the last year this service has provided support to a number of children whom may well have become looked after full time or whose existing placement may have broken down. Whilst breaks are normally for a night they can last longer.
