Statement for publication from Orbis Education and Care

Orbis Education and Care delivers specialised services for children, young people and adults with complex needs associated with autism.

We take any allegation against our staff or our services extremely seriously and where an alleged incident has previously been reported to us, we have thoroughly investigated.

During the period since these alleged incidents took place Tŷ Coryton had 21 inspections or visits (up until 17th May) by independent organisations and authorities who found no faults relating to any of the allegations, with the exception of staff shortages at certain points during the pandemic. We have received a draft Care Inspectorate Wales report on Tŷ Coryton which will be published in the coming weeks, which is complimentary of our staff and our service.

Orbis Education and Care has a comprehensive range of established governance policies and procedures, supported by a well-resourced Quality Team, to work with home managers in the delivery of a safe and high-quality service.

We are proud of the level of education and support we offer at Tŷ Coryton and our amazing staff who care for the children and young people we look after. Creating a warm, stimulating home for our children is what we strive to do every day at Orbis; this is the reason why the vast majority of colleagues choose to work with our unique young people, taking great pleasure and professional pride in the steps forward that we support them to take.
