Save Grove House

This petition made change with 8,015 supporters!

Grove House is a residential, council run, children's home, providing short breaks and respite for disabled young people aged 8 to 18 years in Gateshead. The Council are looking at budget cuts for next year and are considering the privatisation or closure of Grove House.

Recently rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted, we are immensely proud and fiercely supportive of this unique place and the amazing staff who expertly care for our children. Grove House is hugely important to the many children who stay there, their parents, carers and siblings.

Our wonderful children are amongst the most vulnerable in our community with life limiting conditions, they deserve the safe haven that Grove House provides.

Sign this petition to keep this provision within Gateshead.
