Understanding Your Needs


Understanding Your Needs

We support people to understand their needs and how this may impact on their life and the lives of those around them.

  • Residential

    Our residential services provide accommodation and support for autistic adults 52 weeks a year, and 24 hours a day in both country and urban locations. These services are CQC registered.

  • Supported Living

    Our supported Living services are for autistic adults who need extra help to live in their homes or within our accommodation whether as tenants or owner-occupiers living alone or with others.

  • Young People (16+)

    We offer Supported Living and Care Services to Young adults 16 years and over especially people with learning disabilities, autism, and mental health support needs.

  • Family Support

    Our services offer support and advice for parents and carers of autistic children, including support to develop a greater understanding of their child’s needs and accessing services that meet the family’s need

  • Respite Support

    Short-term care and support which is intended to provide a family or carer with a break from daily routines and stresses. It is geared to the specific needs of individuals’ and their carers. It can be provided in the individual’s own home or in a variety of our existing accommodation services. The breaks usually do not last more than 3 months. For financial help the individual will need a community care assessment to assess their need. There are different types of respite including: Residential, emergency, domiciliary and day centre care. All those types allow the carer to have a short break whilst knowing that the individuals’ needs are being met.

  • Domiciliary Support

    Our services provide care and support in your own home with one or more workers coming in to provide assistance and support to enable continuation of daily living helping to maintain personal independence, comfort and contact with friends and family in the local community.

High Needs

This is shared accommodation of usually 4-6 beds where you receive 24 hours care and support. Usually there is a sleep in or waking night support worker based on your needs. This may be ideal if you have been discharged from hospital and need to recover or you may need additional support due to anxiety, emotional distress or challenging behaviour and the need to keep safe.

Medium Needs

You could live in a smaller setting of shared accommodation of 2-4 beds where you receive support when you need it. This may be from 4-12 hours per day and there is no overnight staff on site. This would be a structured service to prepare you for independent living. You will have access to an on call manager to support you when staff is not on site.

Low Needs (Independent living)

You could choose to live independently in your own flat with as much or as little support as you need. This could be in one of our already established properties, or we can work with you and our housing partners to source a property that meets your needs.

Apartment living

You may be looking for the best of both worlds. Your own modern apartment with some shared communal space so you can choose when and if you want to socialise. We have worked with our housing partners to develop this popular type of accommodation.

Stepping stone accommodation

This provides stability whilst you are between long-term support solutions. This type of support will help you plan for your future in a structured way. We will support you with the skills you may need to help you live more independently and, when you are ready, support you to move on.
