  • 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. ho challenge the service.

The Support Delivered

Holland House provides a step down for individuals who are ready to move on from hospital settings to more independent living, as part of their rehabilitation pathway.
Before admission, a key worker is allocated and, if needed, a transition plan implemented to ensure a successful move from the individual’s current placement. A Consultant Psychiatrist will oversee and review the support and treatment given, on a monthly basis.
Through person centred planning Individuals are supported (only where necessary) and encouraged to independently undertake their own personal care requirements, domestic duties, shopping, cooking, self medicate (where applicable), manage own finances, undertake work placements and organise social activities to enhance life skills.
Outcomes and activities are agreed in-line with individual needs, interests, wishes and ambitions and in collaboration with commissioners, families and significant others.
