It is envisaged that Harmony House will provide a place where young people can socialise and experience independent living on a daily basis and through overnight stop-overs, to provide them with the opportunity to experience the confidence independence gives whilst in a safe and secure home from home environment.

 Supporting the Curriculum

Harmony House provides support to the curriculum for children and young adults aged 3 - 19 and  is available for schools and agencies to deliver a comprehensive life skills programme in a 'home style' setting.  Children will be able to learn domestic skills such as washing,  ironing, cleaning windows etc. plus there are facilities to make snacks and meals.

The garden itself provides the resources required for aspects of the  Environmental  Science curriculum by using the raised beds, the greenhouse, garden equipment and the outdoor workshop. All  courses can be accredited either individually or in groups.
