Where will we be living?
There are three houses you might be living at. Greenway Road, Middleway, or 22a. Greenway Road and Middleway are both shared houses and they have staff and cameras. 22a is a private house close by to Middleway.
All of the houses are in Taunton and they are close to parks, shops, activities, places of worship and doctors. All of the houses have the things that you would have at home; dishwashers, washing machines and tumble driers, as well as large, modern kitchens with microwaves.
Greenway Road is a large red brick house in a residential area of north Taunton. It has five big bedrooms, four of which have en suite bathrooms. There is a family bathroom with a bath for the children.
Downstairs, there are two shared sitting rooms with comfy sofas, toys and a large screen television. There is a shared kitchen with lots of cupboard space and a large range cooker. There is a quiet garden at the back of the house with a smoking area and lots of outdoor children's toys. There is a shed to keep prams and buggies dry.
Greenway Road has a downstairs room with a walk in shower so it is accessible for parents with mobility problems.
There is a big park close by, and there is a Morrisons and a Tesco express within walking distance.
Middleway is a big Georgian townhouse close to the centre of town. It has six bedrooms, most of them are double bedrooms with en suite bathrooms. There are two family bathrooms with roll top baths.
There are shared rooms downstairs, a playroom with craft cupboards and toys for the children, a big sitting room with sofas, and eating area and a large tv, and a snug for quiet family time.
We also a house in the community, 22a. This is child-friendly, safe home without cameras where families can live whilst community assessments are carried out. They are often used as a transitional placement between a residential assessment at one of the houses and the family's home community, although some families live there without having been in a residential placement.
22a allows families to live independently and levels of supervision and assessment can be adapted based on the needs of the family and of the assessment.
