Welcome to Northridge

Northridge provides Children’s Homes & Residential Family Centres in the North West of England. We aim to provide services that meet the current national need while supporting children & families as they take their first steps towards a brighter future.

We create a welcoming ‘home from home’ environment, ensuring that young people, parents and their children feel relaxed, safe and at home during their stay at our homes.

Every child deserves
to thrive

The welfare and safety of children is at the forefront of everything we do. We’re committed to ensuring all children are brought up in an environment that encourages them to thrive and grow in safety. High quality, evidence-based assessments enable properly informed decisions to be made about the next step in the lives of our children and families.
