PAINSWICK, Gyde Home,
Painswick, Stroud, Gloucestershire GL6 6RB
General branch for 48 children.
Gyde House is delightfully situated on the hillside above the old-fashioned Cotswold town of Painswick. Opened in 1919 by the trustees of a local charity, the National Children’s Home assumed responsibility for the work in 1935.
Large dormitories have been converted into smaller bedrooms and other alterations have been made to adapt the premises to the family pattern.
For a long time there were boys only at Painswick but girls and younger children have been introduced, so that there are now four family groups with an age range from two to sixteen
