A specialist residential service providing high standards of support, personal care and accommodation for adults aged 18 years and over who have a learning disability, autism and complex needs including behaviour that may challenge.
We offer a person centered approach, which aims to support people to develop increasing levels of independence as far as this is possible and for each person to achieve a higher quality of life.
We offer opportunities to learn new skills, become more independent and try new experiences. We encourage individuals to be active members of the community including using local shops and cafes on a regular basis, looking for volunteering opportunities, working on our community allotment project and accessing courses at local colleges and libraries.
We offer more than somewhere to live, we are offering somewhere to make a home. We ensure individuals are included in all decisions about their care and support, either directly or through carers, family or advocate.
