Supported Living

The focus of our support packages is to meet the person’s needs through experiential learning. Our packages are flexible and are developed to ensure the needs are met. Support is outcome based for the individual and focuses on maximising the individual’s independence.

We will support people to develop independence in:

  • Personal care
  • Social skills
  • Decision making and responsibility
  • Community access
  • Self development
  • Managing their home
  • Managing their finances
  • Developing relationships
  • Being safe and healthy

All of our Supported Living Services are registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC). You can find the reports for our services below.

Orchard House was set up in July 2016 as the first of our apartment style dwellings. The 5 apartments offer each person their own front door, bedroom, bathroom and lounge supported by onsite staff 24 hours per day. This style of accommodation offers tenants more independence and we have seen them flourish in their new surroundings.

Our team have undertaken some fantastic work with the tenants to develop their independence skills and we are all looking forward to the new opportunities that the next year will bring, supporting tenants to grow and develop.

is a 4 bed property with a big rustic dining room, two bathrooms, a spacious lounge, and pretty front and rear gardens. There are four tenants living in Chessel all requiring a different level of support, dependent on their needs. Personalised support plans have been agreed with each person and are regularly reviewed and updated as their needs and preferences evolve. 2 of the tenants regularly volunteer in the community. One works in a charity shop whilst another helps out at the Lakeside Railway.

is a 3 bed bungalow for young adults with autism. Tenants living here attend day activities and college throughout the week and have active lives in the community. Recently a new 12ft trampoline was installed in the garden which all the tenants enjoy using. They have a lovely garden which everyone enjoys spending time in.

Recently they all went to Chessington World of Adventures with staff support. 2 of the tenants are more independent and can go out with friends without any staff support.

is a 3 bedroom property where 3 young adults with autism live. Each of the tenants enjoy active and busy lives; which include attending day activities, college and work mobility life skills.

The tenants get on well together and often socialise by going out to dinner. In the summer, tenants hosted a BBQ for friends and family.
