St George's Home for Girls
Graeme Cairns joins the Morning Cruise to discuss St George's 150th anniversary in August!
St Georges Home is registered to accommodate 40 girls. The girls are divided into 4 families of ten. Each family has a qualified childcare worker (house mother). We also have one relief childcare worker. The overall care is provided for by a social worker
One of our main focuses is to re-integrate the children with their families as soon as possible. By providing specialised care and education and teaching life skills to the girls within a secure environment, caregivers empower them with the necessary skills and knowledge to become confident individuals. The girls are fully integrated into the local community. They attend schools in the surrounding areas, worship at a church of their choice and are actively involved in extra-mural activities.
To provide a quality home
To create a nurturing environment that will cater for the emotional, spiritual, physical, social and educational needs of the girls
To provide social services and quality programmes with a view of possible reunification with the family.
To be a safe and loving home for girls in need of care
