Accommodation is provided in a variety of local settings which includes a mixture of waking night and/or sleep-in, as pertinent to the needs of the current people living there.

Each person has a tenancy and is supported to exercise their rights as well as fulfil their responsibilities around this. Some spaces have aids and adaptations which support people with physical and sensory needs.

New referrals consider the suitability of the building and any further adaptations which would support the person to live as independently as possible. Occupational Therapists are key to the assessment process along with families and existing provision to reflect past experiences and anticipated future need.

Registered under the Care Quality Commission and inspected for regulated activities these services provide high quality care and support in small group living (between 3 and 5 people per flat).

Staff provide a support service which ensures the needs of each person are catered for in their personal care, medication and health, social and leisure, culture and faith, finances, education and employment opportunities. Outcomes are clearly identified, and staff work proactively to achieve these through clear planning, monitoring and reviewing.

Partnership with families, care managers and clinicians as well as other agencies including advocacy ensure each persons needs are well understood and that tools and practices are utilised which empower each person to achieve personal goals in a supportive manner.

Young adults are supported throughout their transition from childhood through to adulthood throughout the planning process; be it from family home, attending a residential college and maximising the existing knowledge of best practice/ tools in order to maintain and develop learned skills
