The Mulberry Bush

The Mulberry Bush is a therapeutic community, registered as a children’s home and a non-maintained residential special school. Since 1948, we have established an outstanding reputation for transforming the lives of children who have experienced significant trauma. Our main aim is to help educate children and build healthy relationships using therapeutic practices.

At The Mulberry Bush, we believe that with support and opportunities, children can overcome challenges and shape their future. Joining our team means being part of an extraordinary story, where you have the chance to be a true hero in the lives of children who have experienced significant trauma.
