Oakington Manor

Oakington Manor Residetial Family Centre is housed in a newly refurbished three-storey property, located in a residential street in Wembley. There is easy access to shops, schools and health facilities and children centres. The centre will be annexed by Cocoon Care’s self contained nursery which parents have the opportunity to utilise as arranged.

At Oakington Manor we offer three types of parent and child placements:

  • Assessment placements – assessing parenting ability over an agreed period
  • Pre-birth placements – helping parents to prepare for the birth of their child
  • Parenting support placements – teaching and supporting the development of parenting skills
    This can be for:
    Families who need a place of safety to live whilst parenting assessments are carried out by the local authority
