ROC Home is a division of ROC Family Support and provides safe, nurturing and caring homes for children and young people who present challenging and complex behaviours. We work with partners to encourage young people to achieve the best outcomes possible so they can go on to lead positive adult lives.

What we do

We offer therapeutic-based support in an expanding number of small specialist homes in Co Durham for children and young people who have emotional and behavioural difficulties.

Our aim is to offer stability, security and a warm, safe caring environment in which children and young people aged between 8 and 17 can positively thrive.
Each high quality four bedroom home caters for solo or dual placements and our teams are trained and equipped to support children and young people who may:

  • display sexually harmful behaviours
  • be drug or alcohol users on supported programmes
  • have mental health issues
  • have learning difficulties
  • be trafficked or at risk of Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) or Child Criminal Exploitation (CCE)

We work with partners to help children and young people to achieve the five outcomes from Every Child Matters:

  1. be healthy
  2. stay safe
  3. enjoy & achieve
  4. make a positive contribution
  5. achieve economic well-being

ROC Group has 20 plus years of experience of working with children and young people in care and we partner with local authorities to create specialist services.


“I like it at the home and I get on well with the staff.”

Young person

“I used to just live in houses but this feels like my home.”

Young Person

“The home is led in a robust manner by a confident manager who sets high standards for her team, the home and the young person. She demonstrates a proactive approach, and clearly values the development of the team by delegating effectively.”
