About this project

Specialist three-tiered residential and supported living service

The development is a specialist three-tiered residential and supported living service, comprising – Roman House, Fenny Mews and Stratford View.

Together, they provide high quality, bespoke, spacious flats which enable independence in environments which individuals can call their home.

Individuals being supported have the following needs:

  • Learning disabilities
  • Autism Spectrum Disorders
  • Mental Health Issues
  • Challenging behaviour
  • Stepping down from secure units and hospitals
  • May have experienced previous placement breakdowns

The development was initiated by the wish to renovate a former 39 bed care home, to provide a three-tiered residential and supported living service.

The three-tiered service model provides individuals with a transition care pathway to move to more independent living and reduced support on the same site, with the aim to move onto independent living in the community over time. This pathway creates a balance between familiarity and new, and decreases anxieties around change to enable smooth and more successful transitions.

The design was specifically tailored to support this three-tiered service model. As such, the former care home was transformed into three distinct separate units –

  1. Roman House: Autism-Specialist Residential Service

Roman House has been developed to support up to 6 individuals with autism spectrum disorders, learning disabilities, mental health issues and challenging behaviour to develop the skills and confidence necessary to lead a life of greater independence and choice.

  1. Fenny Mews: Supported Living Plus Service

Fenny Mews provides a step-down service for individuals moving on from Roman House in addition to supporting individuals who are more independent. It has been designed to support up to 6 individuals with autism spectrum disorders, learning disabilities, mental health issues and challenging behaviour to develop the independence, daily living skills and confidence necessary to move onto more independent living over time.

  1. Stratford View: Supported Living Service

Stratford View has been designed to support up to 7 individuals with complex needs, who are largely independent and who are working towards living independently in the community. Stratford View can be a pathway for residents to join from Fenny Mews alongside supporting individuals who are already fairly independent.

Individuals are welcomed into either Roman House, Fenny Mews and Stratford View, and can join the unit most relevant to their needs.
