Bridge House. This exciting project in the North West opened in August 2014 and has been developed in partnership with Fostering Solutions to provide a specialised four bedroomed residential service for young males aged 11-17 years with sexually harmful behaviours. The provision combines high standards of residential care, therapy and education and together the two agencies provide a comprehensive service from referral to transition back to the community, based on up-to-date research concerning young people with sexual behaviour problems.
