Introduction

Our service philosophy is based on Valuing People principles, including maximising the ability to make choices, respecting basic human rights, fostering inclusion in wider society and encouraging individuals to gain the maximum level of independence they are able to. Our focus is on supporting people through individualised person-centred support plans.

Further information

Team

Our residents have two key workers who support people’s individual needs through support plans, risk assessments and communication passports.  This ensures we know what people’s needs are even if they have language difficulties. 

We work closely with NHS and Kent County Council health and social care professionals to ensure individuals’ physical and emotional needs are met, including an occupational therapist, speech and language therapist, psychiatrist and other professionals as required.

We recognise the importance and involvement of all key stakeholders in developing and enhancing services and active involvement from all parties is encouraged.
