Overfields Farm

This stunning property will be a home for up to three children between the ages of 7 and 13. Overfields Farm is situated within a beautiful picturesque village on the border of Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire.

The home will support children with emotional and behavioural difficulties through delivering high quality, therapeutic care that helps them come to terms with their previous life experiences.

This opened in September 2020 and we are actively recruiting for the Overfields Farm staff team.

At Overfields Farm:

  • Stunning rural home for up to three children
  • Mixed gender
  • Specialist staff working with younger children in emotional and behavioural difficulties
  • High quality care from an experienced team
  • Access to bespoke psychological services

Meet the team

"Hi, I’m Rachael, the Manager at Overfields Farm.

I have worked in the care industry for 23 years, starting my career supporting adults with mental health and progressing to a senior role then into management of a Walk in Centre for those with alcohol addictions and substance misuse.

As much as I enjoyed this job it was time for a new challenge. I knew I wanted to stay in the care industry and felt working with children would give me the job satisfaction I needed, so in 2015 I joined Footsteps to Futures as a Bank Residential Care Worker. I was committed and passionate about the work I was doing and quickly progressed into a Deputy Role, then up to Manager for a short period.

After a little break from residential care where I went to work in Quality Assurance, I decided now was the time to go back to doing what I love and return to Footsteps to Futures, taking over Overfields Farm as Manager in Feb 2024.

I enjoy being able to give a home to children who really need someone on their side, to keep them safe, make them feel wanted and advocate for them with their best interests at heart. We all work as a team with a common goal, and that is to make sure every child that passes through these doors gets the help, support, care and love they need."
