Our Expectations

House Rules, to benefit everyone

It is never easy to accommodate a number of people in close proximity. Differences in age, and background, can lead to problems developing between individuals – problems that could detract you from the primary aim of your stay at Holgate House.

If, at any time, you have questions, please either asks your counsellor or the Support Worker for assistance. They will be happy to help you.
