There will be three staffing teams working on a rotation basis.

A-Triangle managing director Mandy Teale said: “I have two children, my eldest of 22 years is on the autistic spectrum and has MLD.

“Parenting both my children single-handedly has been extrmeely challenging and rewarding at the same time. I have decided with my knowledge and experience I would like to make a difference to a young person’s life and provide residential children’s homes that offer an extremely high standard of care.

“The home setting will be reflective of a loving family home, where the young person can thrive to their full potential.

“The staff will b e dedicated, qualified, and skilled to work with young people.”
