About Beech Lodge
Children's Home

Beech Lodge is a children’s home which is owned by the Hennessy Group. It is a large detached House with 5 bedrooms, based in Billingham. It is a specialist home that provides a service to support children and young people aged from 3 to 19 years old of both sexes who experience emotional and behavioural difficulties, including mental health difficulties and associated conditions.

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

Two bedrooms are located on the ground floor. Upstairs there are three further bedrooms. There are shared communal areas including a spacious open plan living room. There is also a large spacious kitchen and dining room.

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