We can’t wait to welcome you to Juniper TreeHouse – our therapy space for some of the children and young people we work with.
What You Need to Know
- Our space is on the first floor of the building. There is disabled lift access, and a disabled toilet which is situated downstairs
- We are in a shared building with other businesses
- We ask you not to bring any nut products to your sessions. However, because we are in a shared building we cannot guarantee a ‘nut free’ building, so please speak to us about any nut allergies, or other allergies, prior to your visit
- We welcome you to remain with your child throughout the duration of their sessions as a participant! We will also require you to accompany them to the toilet should they need to use this.
- There is CCTV onsite including in the carpark, but there is no CCTV within our therapy rooms. When we record therapeutic sessions, both yourself and your child will be asked for permission to record. We will explain the purpose of this.
- There is a restaurant within the carpark that you will walk directly past, which has an outdoor veranda. Please be aware there may be members of the public using this space.
- Occasionally other office users may bring small, well behaved dogs into the building. Please let us know if this might be a problem for you.
What to Bring
- Both you and your child should wear comfortable clothes that you can play and roll around in! Joggers, leggings, ‘loungewear’ is ideal. You might even get messy depending on what you do in your session, so please come in things that are easily washed!
- You’ll be asked to remove your shoes in the Sensory Integration room – please wear socks you’re comfortable in, or even trampoline socks which have non-slip grips on if you have them!
- Please feel free to bring snacks or drinks with you
When You Arrive
We are in the LS17 Business Centre, Nursery Lane, Alwoodley, Leeds, LS17 7HW. There is a Co-Op next to us. You can find us on Google Maps here.
When you come into the entrance, you will see a large carpark in front of you, with this large annex at the back (please note we are not in the Annex!). There is plenty of free parking. If you require Disabled Parking, turn immediately left upon driving into the carpark and you will see two Disabled Parking Spaces which are in front of the entrance to our building.
Please note all vehicles are left in the car park at the owners risk, and the management does not accept liability for loss or damage caused to any vehicle or contents in the carpark.
From the main carpark area, walk past the front of the The Allerton Asia restaurant until you see this entrance to our building. You will pass a sign which says ‘Madison Offices Alwoodley’. When you arrive, you should telephone your Occupational Therapist who will meet you down at the front door. Please arrive 5 minutes prior to the time for your appointment, not early.
We have a full Risk Assessment for clients visiting us. If you have any concerns about your child visiting us, please request this from your Occupational Therapist. Our building has a large staircase and open balcony.
If you, or the client you are bringing for a session may need assistance to evacuate the building or reach a place of safety in the event of an emergency (for instance, a person with impaired mobility), please complete this Personal Emergency Evacuation Checklist and return it to your Occupational Therapist. If you prefer, we can send you a hardcopy or complete this with you.
We have a magnetic door system in place. within our clinic rooms. This means that we use a fob to move between rooms, or exit the clinic space. An Occupational Therapist will be with you at all times, however in the event of an emergency in the absence of a Therapist, an override key is hung on a hook above each exit point. You can use the key to turn the override from ‘1’ to ‘0’ to leave the room.
We have a preparation document which you can download here with visuals to prepare for your visit, but please let us know if it would be helpful for us to create something specifically for your child.
