Residential Care for Young People
Residential accommodation in Fife is in the main provided in houses for four or five children. This is an alternative when a young person(s) can't live with their own family, or when foster placement is not an option.
There are seven small community houses in total. Two of these also offer respite care to children and young people with a learning disability, or when there's a need for nursing care.
We're also responsible for the coordination when placing children in private residential homes. We do not manage these homes; it's with placements outside the area.
