CHSW Charlton Farm Wraxall

Charlton Farm, Wraxall, Bristol

Charlton Farm is nestled in magnificent parkland, just west of the city of Bristol. It provides a secluded and beautiful setting in which our families can take some time out and just enjoying spending time as a family.

Charlton Farm has been converted from old farm buildings and barns, but with the interiors purpose built and equipped with the children in mind. Set in grounds formerly belonging to the Tyntesfield Estate, our neighbours here are fields, mature woodlands with bluebells in the spring. Deer, hare, ducks, and rabbits have all been seen, yet it is only a short drive into Bristol and all the attractions of a major city.

Charlton Farm has 8 child-friendly rooms and plenty of accommodation for parents and the rest of the family. It really has a home from home feel and we do all we can to make sure that children have some of their favourite toys, games and DVDs waiting for them when they arrive. Exploration uncovers playrooms, teenagers-only rooms, a spa bath for relieving stiff joints and muscle spasm, a sensory room for chilling out and a soft play area for safe, trouble-free fun. There is also a games room and a large open plan kitchen and dining room, which forms the heart of the house. There are also a few cosy places to relax and take a little time out.

Our Hospices Open Days

Each month we open our doors to give our supporters an insight into children’s hospice life and thank our donors and volunteers for all their ongoing support. We do not have any planned family stays at during these days and so you won’t hear the usual noise and laughter that bounces off the walls of the house but you will leave with a huge sense of enthusiasm for your local charity and a proud smile on your face.

Inspection Summary
9 November 2013

On the day of our inspection there were six young people staying at the service. Four of these people had their families staying with them and there was one family who were receiving support due to a recent bereavement. We spoke with one family and one young person who used the service and a family who were receiving support due to a recent bereavement. All the people we spoke with told us that they were fully involved with the care and treatment provided at the service. We saw that care plans were person centred and were signed by the parents and where possible the child or young person. We found that care plans were up to date and reviewed during every visit that the person made to the service. The serviced liaised closely with people’s GP’s and health professionals involved in the person’s care to ensure consistent care and support for people. The service ensured that people were provided with food and drink that met their individual needs. People we spoke with told us that they liked the food and had access to food and drink at any time of the day or night. Staff told us they received regular support and training that enabled them to carry out their roles effectively. The service had a robust complaints policy and procedure in place. People told us that they knew how to complain but had not had reason to do so. We saw that where people had made comments to improve the service these had been acted on.
