Foxhill Cottage

Back to Residential Care

Spark of Genius Residential homes for Children and Young People.

Foxhill Cottage is situated in a small semi-rural community, offering a therapeutic and peaceful environment for the young people to learn, grow and develop.

The staff team at Foxhill have been carefully selected based on their experiences, their knowledge and their motivation to ensure our children enjoy an extremely positive care experience. The ethos within Foxhill is underpinned by a firm understanding of child development, the principles of ‘Getting it Right for Every Child’ and the desire to ensure all Young People meet their developmental milestones whilst achieving positive outcomes from the moment they arrive. As staff we advocate on their behalf and also offer guidance on making the best choices possible and offering encouragement to have a voice around decisions that affect their lives.

Although rural, Foxhill Cottage is close to surrounding towns 10 minutes from Ayr and 20 minutes from Kilmarnock, offering a wide range of activities and clubs.

We encourage and support the young people to participate in a range of activities, providing new experiences and encouraging them to build relationships outwith Foxhill.

The cottage provides a homely and relaxed environment which is important to both the young people and staff team, with the young people being involved in all aspects of the decor and feel of the cottage. The cottage is spacious with 5 bedrooms, 2 of which have an en-suite. There is a large kitchen where the young people and staff enjoy meal times together and use this as an opportunity to talk about their day and make plans.  The young people often enjoy helping to prepare meals, particularly at the weekend whilst improving their independent skills with support from staff.  We have a spacious games room which the young people enjoy using either on their own or as a group.  The young people and staff use this for playing games consoles, listening to music arts and crafts, movies nights and generally relaxing.  We also have another lounge which the young people like to use to watch tv.

The cottage has a large garden with a trampoline and various other physical activities which the young people are encouraged to use. There is also a quiet area at the back of the garden which the young people like to use for some quiet time or time with a staff member.

Foxhill Cottage is linked to our education campus, Caledonian School, where we can offer education placements for children and young people of a Primary and Secondary age. There are also opportunities and supports for Young People to attend Mainstream Schools if that meets their individual needs.
