About the Program

The Flamborough Program is available to youth who are experiencing emotional, social and behavioural challenges related to their mental health.  These challenges are usually of an intensity and frequency that less intrusive interventions are would be unlikely to be of sufficient benefit to the youth and family.

The program is staffed by professional Child and Youth Workers, a part-time Social Worker, a cook, maintenance personnel, and access to a clinical consultation model.

About the Flamborough School

Youth in the Flamborough Out of Home Program can also be registered to attend the Flamborough School Program.  This provides a therapeutic learning environment and is staffed by a full-time Child and Youth Worker, and a teacher who is employed by the local Board of Education.

Clinical Resources

The team can call on an array of clinical resources, including a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, Occupational Therapist, FASD consultant, Clinical Assessments and Measures, and Complex Needs consultant. The ultimate goal of service is the re-integration of the youth to family or a less intrusive setting.
