Support Services for Adults
We support people with varying needs and varying abilities. All packages of support are based on person centred planning, which means they are tailored to the bespoke needs of the individual. Working towards positive outcomes for those individuals – however large or small those might be - is the passion of the service, and the colleagues who work there are trained to deliver a wide range of support, including where required, intimate and personal care, supporting behaviour that can be challenging, developing independence and confidence, supporting positive relationships and total communication. People who we support can be confident that we will respect their individuality, understand their current support needs, but also very importantly focus on their development. Most importantly we listen carefully to our residents and their families, so that we can learn and improve the service for them by carefully considering their life history, feedback and experiences and they are encouraged to take an active role in the running of the homes and indeed the wider organisation, wherever possible.
The Community Network, 01925 246870, firstname.lastname@example.org
The Community Network provides a variety of support to adults and young people who may be older, or have a learning and/or physical disability and/or associated mental health needs, but wish to live their lives with the greatest self-sufficiency possible and to take their place as active citizens in the community.
Each person we support has an individualised support plan that they have helped to put together, this is based on the individuals interests, personality, wants and needs. Because of this flexibility, it is ideal for people who do not neatly fit into boxes and labels and whose needs are complex or particular to them. It is also ideal for people who are using, or who might like to work towards using a personalised budget.
Services may be delivered in the person’s own home, out and about in the community or in educational and work settings. They could be 24 hours a day support or less intense periods of activity based or short breaks work.
Radcliffe Meadows, Culcheth, 01925 765550, email@example.com
Radcliffe Meadows is home to twelve people with learning disabilities who may also have a physical disability as well. The building is a purpose built single storey home with large grounds in the pleasant Cheshire village of Culcheth each resident has their own bedroom.
We encourage the people who live here to be active in and contribute to their community and staff levels ensure they can go and enjoy activities that are important to the individual such as meeting and visiting friends and family, going to the pub, the cinema or shops, engage in work or learning activity or go on holiday. The support we provide is person centred and bespoke to each individual.
As a registered nursing home we can work positively and safely with complex health and medication needs and use a multi-disciplinary team of Registered General, Learning Disability and Mental Health Nurses along with Support Workers. This ensures we can support residents with a mixture of additional needs relating to their disability. This often includes a reduced intellectual ability and difficulty with everyday activities. It can also relate to the need for support with physical and health care such as mobility, bathing, medication or specialist methods of gaining nutrition.

53, Twiss Green Lane, Culcheth, 01925 766982, email@example.com
Lucklaw and 53, Twiss Green Lane are two small residential homes that each offer a long term home to four people with learning and physical disabilities and may have been classified as having profound and multiple learning disabilities (PMLD). When there are vacancies, they can also be used occasionally as a location for short breaks away from a permanent home elsewhere.
Respectively located in specially adapted bungalows one in Culcheth and the other in the Burtonwood area of Warrington, both have homely environments and nice gardens that give the people that live there a really personal experience of support and adult life in their own home, but in the social company of living with a small group of other people.
Each person has their own bedroom and shares communal facilities for cooking, dining, personal care, relaxing and pursuing home based leisure activities as well as enjoying the shared use of the pleasant gardens. They are encouraged to bring their own property and furniture with them and are actively encouraged to decorate and personalise their own rooms. A wide range of food and drinks are bought specifically for the people that live there in accordance with their own tastes and preferences.
