Our homes are registered to provide care for children and young people of either gender with a diagnosed learning disability aged between 10 – 18 years, with varying needs such as: – Severe Learning Disabilities, High Functioning Autism, Autistic Spectrum Disorder; attachment and communication difficulties, all of whom may present specific challenges in terms of difficult behaviours, whether diagnosis related or learned.
We provide a service where a high level of individualised support is required. We have highly skilled trained staff, that are able to meet the needs of the young people placed in our homes. Training includes Safeguarding, Communication, Attachment and behaviour management.
We believe that children and young people can develop, thrive and fulfil their potential in a home which is child-centred; where they feel loved, happy, healthy and safe from harm; that operates in a flexible, nurturing, caring and homely way to meet individual needs; where they are valued unconditionally and where sound attachments and positive relationships are maintained irrespective of diagnosis.
We work to the principle of providing a consistent, caring, nurturing and skilled staff group committed to the young people and to the philosophy of the organisation, which is to achieve positive outcomes and make a difference to those in their care.
We aim to create opportunities for them to achieve positive outcomes, to grow at a rate commensurate with their diagnosis and abilities, through the provision of support and services that are timely, well planned and considered.
