The service is a supported living service for adults with learning disabilities and autism. Some of the service users fall under the organisations domiciliary care registration and is aimed at young individuals who are in the process of leaving children’s services.
We provide a high quality of flexible care to service users through a committed, dedicated and trained staff team, providing 24 hours support to cater for service user’s individual needs and to provide opportunities to enable each individual to develop skills to maximise their independence as valued members of the community and society.
We promote community presence by providing a wide range of activities and opportunities and supporting service users to choose from this tailor made package based on their interests and needs. We support individuals with their education and employment as well as the opportunity to move on to a more independent setting when they have developed their skills and are ready for this move.
Individuals are supported to access both internal and external resources and are supported to become involved in service user-led activity such as Police Training, User Involvement group and Self advocacy group.
We work closely with individuals, their family and friends and the Multi-disciplinary team to ensure that the person has access to all services and that there Care Plans, Risk Assessments and guidelines reflect how they wish to be supported by their circle of support.
We encourage service users to build on the current network of friends and family and support them to maintaining and encouraging theses contacts and facilitate and support new friendships as and when they occur.
We tailor individual packages to suit the wishes, wants and needs of individual service users by conducting Person Centred Review (PCR) meetings every year, where the needs, choices, independence and quality of life of each service user is reviewed and goals are set for the following period. These goals/needs are reviewed at a PCR review meeting every six months and individuals are supported to take steps to achieve their goals on a daily basis.
