Introducing Tŷ Cwtch
We have a very successful residential children’s home – Tŷ Cwtch. We can accommodate up to 16 young people in personalised rooms. We offer a variety of tailored packages for all year, term time accommodation or short breaks.
We offer young people residential short breaks and placements, including day educational placements and combinations of stays to suit and accommodate individual needs, for up to 52 weeks per year, either weekly or termly.
Respite & Short Breaks
You do not have to attend Craig y Parc School to be offered a short break placement at Tŷ Cwtch.
