Welcome to Rowan House

Rowan House is exceptionally proud to be acknowledged as an Outstanding Provider by Ofsted.

At Rowan House we are Ofsted registered to provide care for up to three children and young people, any gender, from ages 8-17 years old.
We want Rowan House to feel like a ‘home from home’; a warm, welcoming environment where children and young people are supported, kept safe and provided with the tools needed to thrive and achieve their full potential.

The centre of St Helens can be reached within 10 minutes and there is a variety of amenities in close proximity to include a range of local schools, shops, medical practices, places of worship and leisure facilities. To help develop social and independent skills we take every opportunity to explore the wider community to include Lancashire, Liverpool, Cheshire, and Chester.

Rowan House Ethos

At Rowan House we will work together to deliver individualised, child centred care to all of our children and young people so that they build positive relationships within their home.



We empower young people and encourage them to be involved in all aspects of their care.


How we see Success …

'One young person arrived at Rowan House having not engaged in their education for several years. Within their first week, My3 services and Rowan adults had recognised the incredible academic potential of this young person and began to explore and identify potential barriers between them and their academic attainment. When it became evident that the barriers were in relation to the young person’s diagnosis of Autism, sensory processing issues and other health needs, we worked in partnership with the local education systems, to bridge this gap and ensure that the education provision on offer was accessible and considered these additional needs. As such, our young person went on to complete several academic assessments and was placed within the top 1% of academic ability amongst peer group. Scoring the highest marks ever recorded on some of the papers and now on track to complete GCSE’s! It has been wonderful to see this young person’s confidence grow, and Rowan adults won’t be surprised if they see this young person one day as one of our country’s greatest leaders!'

Young people are consulted regularly for their views and opinions, and their voice is listened to throughout all their plans.


Young people enjoy living at the home and like to contribute. 
For example, they have great fun creating the ‘Rowan on Record’ newsletter informing everyone of all that has occurred and about to happen at
Rowan House and within My3.


To achieve the best possible outcomes for each young person, the staff team have experience, skills, knowledge and qualifications, supported by
the wider senior leadership team within My3 Ltd.

How we see Success …

'The team at Rowan House are trained and experienced in working with ARFID - Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder - and have ongoing training in sensory integration, delivered by My3’s Therapeutic Manager. As such, the team have been able to support one young person to make significant progress in terms of their nutrition and diet, an essential part of growing into a healthy adult! On arriving at Rowan House, this young person had eaten a very limited diet of sweets, crisps and cake for several years. After just one month, this young person was enjoying a variety of fruits, vegetables and some healthy meal options prepared by Rowan adults. They continue to enjoy exploring a wider variety of healthy food options as their tolerance for new tastes and textures improves and have recently discovered a love for carrots!'

Social Worker - St Helens

The home is exceptionally presented and maintained to a high standard. It radiates warmth, comfort and nurture.”
Ofsted - March 2022

Rowan House is a warm, welcoming, and inviting place to be. I am new to this field but since starting as a residential care worker, I have received more training than I have in any other role, and I can’t fault the support I have received so far. I think it’s really special that the manager and the rest of the team have not only made sure I’m fully prepared and comfortable working here, but they have gone above and beyond to make sure our young person is comfortable with having a new face around the house. On my first day we all went bowling together, which was great because I got to see how everyone works and our young person could get to know me without any pressure.”
