Our residential living service in Sutton that provides 24-hour support to adults with learning disabilities and complex needs has a rare vacancy.
The Grove in Grove Road, which recently held an exhibition showcasing service users’ art work, provides a home for up to nine adults for people with varying disabilities including autism and Down’s Syndrome.
The service is run by care provider Regard who have just been awarded the Investors in People Gold Award for its management – one of only four organisations in the sector to gain the standard.
Service Manager Katarzyna Kalinska leads a team all trained in specialist autism courses and supporting service users to build up skills and access employment and education activities where possible.
Katarzyna, who has 12 years’ experience in the sector, said: “It is very rare but at the moment we have a single room available. There is an enormous need for this kind of provision in Surrey.
“The room might suit someone who is now over the age of 25 and needs to make a home of their own away from their parents. We provide 24-hour support to adults with a learning disability in a relaxed and homely setting.”
Service users recently held an exhibition of their paintings and drawings at the property, and invited friends, families and local care industry individuals to join them to celebrate the occasion. A number of pieces were sold on the day.
The Grove Road is a semi-detached house with shared communal facilities and a garden.
Families with an adult with learning difficulties can learn more about the opportunity by calling the Regard referral line: 0800 840 0313.
