This helps those with particularly complex needs to further develop their independence skills while building a fulfilling life as part of the community.

Each individual has their own tenancy, but also a person-centred support plan and a support team assigned to them. Support is provided on a one to one basis tailored to their bespoke needs and how they want to live their life.

Support can cover any aspect of a person’s life, from support with on-going education and skills development to managing finances and participating in leisure and work opportunities. Extra help can be provided with daily living tasks like cleaning and cooking so individuals have confidence in the day to day running of their home.

There are also two shared floating staff who are available to offer additional assistance to any of the individuals living at the service at very short notice giving added peace of mind to respond to challenges which may arise.

Our Tizard Centre Positive Behaviour Intervention Team are also on hand to assist with the planning of day to day support and to help work with behaviours that may be holding people back from fulfilling their potential.

The service is particularly appropriate for individuals who are leaving hospital settings and need an intensive level of support to ensure that their transition into the community is a safe and sustainable one.
