Our Team

The staff team at Acorn Care are vibrant, enthusiastic and dedicated.
We have an innovative and proactive approach to providing a holistic, high quality care package to meet the needs of all our young people.

Acorn Care recognise that the staff team is their most valuable asset. They are highly motivated to create a positive, nurturing and warm atmosphere within the home and are fully supported via training and Managerial guidance to promote a warm, safe environment where young people can flourish and develop relationships built on honesty and trust.

Acorn takes great pride in providing an excellent Training and Development program. We offer a comprehensive range of programmes for all staff to develop their skills to enable them to provide a higher quality experience for young people who cannot live with their birth families. This is completed in partnership with local authorities, colleges, PCT's, our in-house Clinical Psychologist and other accredited providers.

Safeguarding Children is paramount and all of our staff are trained in partnership with Darlington’s LCSB to ensure they understand the vital role they play in the safeguarding and protection of young people.

All members of staff are subject to a full vetting procedure before employment with Acorn.
