With a caring, positive and enthusiastic team there is a busy atmosphere at Little Smugglers and where there is a focus on helping each individual to achieve their goals and aspirations and to have the opportunity to participate in lots of activities in the local community.

Little Smugglers benefits from a semi rural location but with easy access to the large town of Crawley and its many shopping and leisure amenities. Good bus and train links close by offering plenty of opportunities to get out and about. Individuals attend local social clubs in the day and evening and sometimes enjoy going out together or meeting other friends.

They are also involved in the planning of events at Little Smugglers such as festivals, afternoon tea and BBQs where family and friends are always welcome.

Some of the people at Little Smugglers may also have behaviours which others might find challenging and will receive specialist support and personalised strategies from our Positive Behaviour Support Coach to ensure they are able to live a good quality of life.

Encouraging greater independence is a key focus. Individuals are supported in managing daily living skills and everyday tasks and have their own areas of responsibility in the running of the home such as menu planning and cooking.

Achievements and successes are always celebrated and one individual was supported to fulfil their dream of doing a sky dive.
