Below is an example of the process that you may go through in finding a new home in one of our Residential Lodges.
Contact our Residential Services registered manager Jo Burke to discuss your interest and see if we have any available spaces.
Book in a viewing and visit our 3 Residential Lodges to see everything we have to offer and whether one of them would be a good fit for you.
Speak to your social worker to let them know you're interest in moving into one of our Residential Lodges and to discuss how you can do so.
We will arrange a visit with you, your social worker, and anyone else of your best interest to do an assessment to make sure we can support all of your induvial needs.
We would then speak with your social worker and look at the funding and support you would need.
Once agreed, it's moving time! We would then look at the best way to support the move, this could be short visits to overnight stay, to then moving in. This would all depend on your individual needs and the best way we can help you transition into your new home.
