Tŷ Cwtch Residential Home

Welcome

Welcome to Tŷ Cwtch, our Residential Home at the Craig y Parc School site.

Do you think your child could be making more progress but don’t always know how or when to help them?

At our residential children’s home we make sure the children we support get the most from every experience and can find the best ways to improve their physical, cognitive and communication skills. This can be through one to one support or may include the benefit of a team of specialist staff.

The new residential building, Tŷ Cwtch opened at Easter in 2012. We were all sad to leave the grand old building which had been our home for many years, but incredibly excited to have a new purpose-built building as a home. Both students and staff had a hand in helping to shape and design the look of their new home.

Tŷ Cwtch can accommodate up to 16 students in two-bedded bedrooms, and all of the rooms are personalised by the young people who occupy them (single occupancy is available).
