What we do

While our supported living services provide greater independence for our tenants, they are also safe in the knowledge that care and support is on site should they need it and the local community is right on their doorstep.

We listen to the needs of our tenants and offer support with a wide range of care, so we can help with getting dressed, cooking a meal or support for going out and about in the local community. We’ll be with our tenants every step of the way to helping them choose their new way of life.

feedback from tenants and families

As always you are your team have been fantastic in allaying our concerns about our son. Such good ideas social stories and visual timetables mean so much. The Lodge is going to be at the forefront of the local community and we are so lucky that you have been instrumental in this transition.

We never thought our son would wash a car WOW that’s amazing and a milestone in his development in becoming an adult such a simple but meaningful activity
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.

The staff are great they really know me and help me. My keyworker has helped me to access behavioural therapy (CBT) and now I don’t worry so much at all and I can get on with enjoying my life.
