Children’s Residential Care

We thrive on independence and the delivery of new directions in our service.

Who is Tús Nua?

Tús Nua is a children’s residential home for up to 4 young people aged between 13-17. A 2storey house with 4 ensuite bedrooms. Situated only 2 km from the main M3 and local bus stop. Accessible to all local amenities.

We currently have a house manager, deputy manager, 8 full members of staff and 3 relief. 

The model of care used by Tús Nua is the Secure Base Model. This model has its roots in theory on attachment, but also on resilience. We implement the Therapeutic Crisis Intervention Model when supporting our young people through crisis.


Tús Nua promotes the enhancement of all our young people’s quality of life through increasing personal autonomy, status and opportunities for social inclusion while building peer groups.
