About Aspen House

Aspen House is a children’s home which is owned by the Hennessy Group. It is a large detached House with 5 bedrooms, based in Hartlepool. It is a specialist home that provides a service to young adults aged from 13 to 18 years old who experience Social, emotional and behavioural difficulties, including mental health difficulties and associated conditions.

Aspen House provides support for long term outreach care (in some cases) and emergency/accelerated admissions dependent upon compatibility and suitable space within the home.

There are shared communal areas including a spacious open plan living room. There is also a large spacious kitchen and dining room and 5 spacious bedrooms for young people spread across two levels.

Children and young adults will be deemed suitable to reside together following completion of a comprehensive compatibility risk assessment. Aspen House’s Management have an excellent reputation in the development and progress of complex children and young adults who have challenged service previously.
