Supported living allows you to live independently and have control over how and when you receive support. We can support you to achieve your goals, such as becoming an active member of your local community.

The benefits of supported living is providing you with the choice, control and independence from holding your own tenancy and having your own front door. You will also have round the clock support from a member of staff should you need assistance.

Staff are professionally trained and dedicated to their roles, using their extensive expertise to help improve daily living for each individual.

Each individual person we support pays for their rent. This could be by housing benefit. The utility bills are shared and each individual pays a proportion. The costs of living charges such as food, clothes and activities are met by the individual.

Under the care Act 2014 – Where it appears to a local authority that an adult may have needs for care following an assessment. Support will be commissioned based upon the assessment and support will be funded by the local authority. Sometimes these hours can be shared hours (core) or 1:1 hours model.

Our flexible support is tailored to your needs, whether you’re looking for a few hours a week or more. Together, we co-create personalised support plans focusing on your interests, priorities and skills.

Your next step would be to speak with your case worker or advocate to discuss options that would be best suited to you and your circumstances.

SOME KIND WORDS FROM CURRENT people we support
We were so impressed to look around The Lodge, it so professional, organised and vibrant we had visited many services and were beginning to give up hope but now we can’t think of anywhere better for our son and we are, after many years of disappointment actually looking forwards to his future.
Hope you are well just wanted to say a big thank you to you and all your staff for looking after our son especially during these uncertain times. He has had a lot of changes recently and I am so proud of him. It was lovely to talk to him on skype on Saturday and he seemed very happy and seems to have taken on board the current situation well. I’m aware you all have been a big part in helping him to understand everything and all of his family appreciate this. Much love to you all.
As always you and your team have been fantastic in allaying our fears and concerns. Such good ideas and visual timetables mean so much and the new direction the lodge is taking is going to put it in the forefront of the local community and we are so lucky that you have been instrumental in this transition. Our son washing a car WOW that’s amazing and a milestone in his development in becoming an adult such a simple but meaningful idea - Keep safe and a BIG thank you from us to you all.
Just to say a big thank you to you all in the effort that goes into making visits with us happen in a safe and constructive manner which will be a benefit to all concerned. His MUM has a smile as wide as her face and is counting down the days to be able to spend some time with her eldest son. I have just printed off the social story so that Mum can be clear on guidelines and have the strength to correct him should he try to push boundaries.
Having the support of the staff at The Lodge has been invaluable for him and he feels that he is able to express his needs positively. He is also working really hard developing his independence skills and can now; cook his own meals, bake cakes, shop for items he needs with support, clean and tidy his own room, do his own laundry and he has recently mastered the art of changing his own duvet cover, which he is particularly delighted about.
