Description:

IDEM Living has developed a reputation for the creative development of bespoke packages of care for young people, who are experiencing challenges in their lives and presenting with behaviour that
requires a safe, consistent yet creative supportive approach, which promotes self-identity and change.

We have a specialist home working with vulnerable young people who have Autism and require highly specialised support. This home is based in Huyton, Liverpool. Alongside this home, we work closely with carers and associated professionals towards transition, supported living and the promotion of independence.

We have two further homes based near the market town of Taunton and semi-Rural East Devon. These homes provide up to two beds each, working with young people who have
specialist needs relating to CSE, Mental Health & Wellbeing, as well as other associated complex behavioural needs.

We have developed a reputation for working with sexually vulnerable and exploited young women, creating both an environment for change and an outcomes based service. We have blended the PBS approach within these services to ensure we provide a consistent outcome focussed therapeutic approach to each young person.
