Our company Head Office is located in Heaton Mersey, Stockport.
We have supported living services in:
Each of our properties are designed to support between one and four supported people. Within the house the staff teams vary in size from seven members of staff up to 13 members of staff. These staffing level are required to enable the extensive support the individuals need but also to ensure the Therapeutic activities provided can be accessed at all times. Within the house environment there will always be a Service Manager, Assistant Manager and keyworker for each supported person, in addition to Walk Leaders and First Aiders. The teams are specific to a single house, they focus all their core hours on this house and the people supported within it, building up relationships and creating consistent approach. From time to time members of staff at one house may be asked to support other houses, and members of staff do move between houses when new opportunities for them arise. In all cases any changes in members of staff at a house are managed through robust succession planning.
When a new supported person joins a service we will identify a mix of existing staff and new staff to work with them. A new member of staff would never be a key worker, until they had passed their probationary period and become competent in delivering our ethos, and approaches.
