Crisis Intervention

Supporting young people to distance themselves from negative influences in the community.

What we do

Ty Rhos and Birch Grove offer young people who have experienced significant placement disruption and present with high-risk behaviours, a highly structured programme of outdoor activities to reintegrate into local communities.

  • Its lovely seeing the young people make such progress in their time with us. I think of it like a reset button for them, quite often that's all they need to see big changes

Our Aim

Placements at Ty Rhos and Birch Grove have avoided the need for children to be placed in civil or criminal secure placements and enabled smooth transition into registered children’s homes and foster placements.

During the 12 week stay, there is a strong emphasis on behaviour management, creating a structure to allow young people to develop the necessary pro-social coping skills.

Our main objective is to provide young people with a safe, therapeutic environment with experienced staff, to support their needs and educate them on using techniques to express and control their emotions in socially acceptable ways; rather than display aggressive or challenging behaviours.

How we work

Situated in the heart of the Brecon Beacons, young people placed here engage in a programme of outdoor activities. These provide a platform for building relationships and therapeutic work focusing on self-esteem, identity and the development pro-social coping skills to keep themselves and others safe before transitioning back into the community.

Outdoor Activities

We offer a range of outdoor activities with our staff qualified in everything from gorge walking, rock climbing, abseiling, caving, hill walking, mountain biking and coasteering.
