Overview of service
We offer a 24 hour service which is geared to meeting the needs of each individual, we do this by person centred planning and making sure that the people we support are involved in making decisions about how the service provided.
The service is split into different areas, these include 3 shared houses for 8 people, 1 shared flat for 2 people and 4 individual bungalows.
The service works with a maximum ratio of 1 staff to 5 individuals although at most times this is considerably less as a number of people have dedicated 1:1 packages to enable them to undertake specific activities.

People who live in the service have a wide variety of opportunities to choose from in order to occupy themselves for example.
