Autism Service

Cherry is a residential home for people living with a learning disability and/ or Autism. The home works with commissioners, families and individuals to provide support designed around individual needs, wants and aspirations.
Residents at Cherry are supported using active support, person centred planning (PCP) and positive behavioural support (PBS).

Cherry supports:

  • Males or females aged 18 and over who have a diagnosis of a autism and a learning disability. Individuals are likely to have additional needs an may display behaviours that challenge.
  • Admission is primarily based upon an initial 12 week assessment period.

Philosophically, we believe in understanding the needs of the individual through robust assessment in order to provide person centred support to enable individuals to lead fulfilling lives as part of their local community.
We do this through:

  • A small Autism specific environment to encourage staff to reflect on practice and how to support the individual.
  • Person centred plans to develop positive behaviour support, enabling individuals to maintain and develop skills leading to greater independence.
  • Providing services that represent good value for money by demonstrating measurable, effective outcomes and progression.
  • Ensuring our colleagues have opportunities for tailored training and development to meet individual needs.
  • Ensuring that compliance and audit systems support service delivery and constantly drive improvement and embed quality in everything we do.
  • We work with a wide range of stakeholders to meet the needs of the individuals needs.
  • The support you receive will be tailored around you and your individual needs- a person centred approach.
  • We will work with you to increase and maintain your independence and opportunities.
  • Our care and support is tailored to you and your needs. We will support you in all aspects of daily life, where needed.
  • We facilitate and support you to engage in forums to ensure you have a say about, and take an active role with the running of your home.
  • We will encourage and support you to learn new skills in a setting you find most comfortable with – this may be at home or in the community.
