Eastry VillasBack to Locations Map
Eastry Villas forms part of the Aspire transition service – a specialist residential service, providing 2 – 5 transitional pathways for 18 – 25 year olds, with a view to preparing youngsters for supported living. Our settings are modern, bright and comfortable, offering homely accommodation and living environments, either in single or shared properties. We can also offer supported access to local colleges.
Our service philosophy is based on Valuing People principles, including maximising individuals’ ability to make choices, respecting basic human rights, fostering inclusion in wider society, and encouraging people to gain the maximum level of independence they are able to. Our focus is on supporting people through individualised person-centred support plans, helping them to make choices and promoting independence.
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.
