Our Vision

Care is individually planned and we focus on children having fun during their stay as well as acknowledging each child’s developmental and social needs. We offer facilities for parents to stay with their child while they’re at Sunflowers as we firmly believe that families should be together whenever possible.

Sunflowers complies with Fire Regulations and we adhere to Health and Safety standards. All staff receive annual mandatory training covering these issues.

Helping children live ordinary lives in extraordinary circumstances

Sunflowers Care is led by Lucy Andrews and Karen Higgins who have over 50 years combined nursing experience. Their team is highly trained and share the ethos that children are ideally cared for at home but when that cannot happen a home-from-home environment is the next best option.
