T-Junction
Children's Services

T-Junction consists of four small children’s homes on the outskirts of Leicestershire, each offering placements for up to three children and young people, aged between six and eighteen years. Our children’s homes are set up to provide therapeutic care, typically those who have suffered significant trauma or neglect in their early lives and who are unlikely to manage the demands of foster family dynamics. Eastside is a home registered with OFSTED to provide care and support to young people with learning difficulties. Westside, Northside, and Southside, are homes registered with OFSTED to provide care and support to young people with emotional and behavioural difficulties.


Our homes are comfortable and welcoming places with soft sofas and squishy cushions, clean kitchens, and good smells of baking. A safe haven and secure base for every child and young person who live there. A place with spaces to have fun – and also to have those quieter times. Our homes are designed to give children and young people the privacy of their own bedroom, decorated in a way that appeals to them In areas where other families live, near parks and shops, with places to ride bikes and play games – and make friends.

T-Junction was set up in 2017 by Tim Clare, who was himself in care, and who has a powerful vision of what children need to feel good about themselves in a care home.

  • I can not fault the staff. They have done everything in their power for this young person.

    I have seen him have excellent relationships with the staff and they have shown they have with him by how they all respond to each other. This has been a fantastic placement for all involved. Thank you

    It was lovely to meet you and the team yesterday and to have a look around the home.  It looks like you’ve hit the ground running and have dedicated staff who are passionate about positive outcomes for the young people in your care.

  • … You were so good with all my children in care, I can only hope that whoever takes over the job is half as good as you!! You have been a shining example for kids in Care as you have proved that it is possible to achieve your dreams and not to become part of the failure statistics.

  • Tim is a pleasure to work with. He has a lovely relaxed approach to getting things done which will hold him in good stead in his new role of Director of a Residential home. He is thoughtful and considerate with an ability to adapt to what is in front of him. I look forward to working with Tim again in the future.
