We provide support so young people aged 18 - 25 making the transition into adulthood are ready for the future and the move towards Adult Services, whether that’s with us or with another provider.

Providing support

Full support can be provided for all care needs, and all of our staff are highly trained and experienced in a variety of care techniques. Staff work closely with social workers and health care professionals to ensure all needs are met, as well as support to access the local community. Bespoke timetables based on each individual’s needs are created to include physiotherapy, life skills, sensory activities, social interactions, and much more, our support workers want to help everyone to live their lives as independently as possible.

Lawford Lodge

Lawford Lodge is a respite home for 18 to 25 year olds who have profound disabilities and complex medical needs.

It is a two-bedroom bungalow with a lounge area, kitchen, accessible bathroom and a large garden. There are hoisting facilities throughout the home.

Adults with complex medical needs can come for breaks, which can vary in length dependent on assessed need, for example, one night per month or two nights per week. We can then work with the young person and their parent or carer to support transition fully to an adult service before they are 25.
