Impact for Change Ltd began in November 2017 with out first home in rural Devon. We used our many years of experience and knowledge of the sector and applied this to our well lead staff team which are our MOST important asset. We have worked and been successful with some AMAZING and INSPIRING young people who have challenged us and worked with us to reach their full potential.
Since opening our first home we have worked with Local Authorities to expand and grow organically implementing good practice in an environment where we learn every day.
All our homes are registered with Ofsted, they are rural in nature. We pride ourselves in how our homes feel like a home.
Due to the nature of all our homes, we are unable to provide emergency placements, nor are we able to care for children and young people with significant mobility issues or those young people who require medical oversight for addiction issues.
This is one of the things we do best
We have fun! Through the PLACE approach we support young people to develop and grow in a caring and nurturing environment.

Luton Lane Farm
Luton Lane Farm was our first home, it is close to J28 off the M5.
Luton Lane Farm cares for 2 young people with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties.
In our recent Ofsted inspection, in September 2021 the home was rated good.
The children are cared for by staff who are motivated and enthusiastic about improving the children’s outcomes…Children are now routinely provided with a healthy, nutritious and balanced diet and the activities offered promote their physical health as well as their emotional well-being.
The home is managed by Jan Bevan, who has over 20years experience in residential childcare. She is supporting, some truly amazing team members in delivering quality care to our young people.
Holly Farm, was our second home. Opening in 2018, it is our most suburban home being located in a small village near junction 25 off the M5.
Holly Farm is a home registered for 3 young people with social, emotional behavioural difficulties aged between 8-18.
At Holly Farm, there is also a self contained annex this supports young people who are working towards being a care leaver or those young people which need more specialist care.
Holly farm is managed by Russell Chapman, he has several years residential care experience and works tirelessly with his team in supporting the children and young people residing at Holly Farm.
I have worked within many different children homes over many years, and it is my opinion the staff team provide a safe and nurturing environment within Holly Farm of very high standard.
The team works amazingly hard at giving children and young people happy, fun childhood memories.
