How Supported Living can change your life

Supported living is for people who want to live a more independent life, for individuals who want more choice and control of their lives. We provide accommodation and person-centred support for people with emotional, physical, and learning needs across Leicester and surrounding areas.  We work with service users on all aspects of daily living skills and individual goals.

The Healthy Living Personal Program

The Homes can accommodate both long- and short-term placements and can also accommodate placements at short notice. The purpose is to offer a safe, structured, and caring environment to young people who are not living with their parents and are preparing for independent living. The approach of Beaconsfield House and Aylestone House to ensure that the young people placed within our care have the skill set and ability to lead independent and fulfilling lives with strong attachments and relationships following on from leaving care.

A Supportive Hug

Support every step of the way

Staff at Beaconsfield House and Aylestone House will help each young person to understand the importance and value of education, learning and training. We encourage and support young people to set and achieve their own positive goals in education, training, and employment. We recognise that many young people may have had disrupted or difficult experiences in their education and that being in a school or college environment may not be suited to them.

 

This may result in pursuing further education through other avenues or engaging in a training programme, apprenticeship, or employment. All young people will have a support plan which will consider information about their career/ life aspirations and ambitions. This will be followed up and developed from information gathered during the key working process. The staff team will liaise and work in partnership with the Young Person’s Personal Advisor/ social worker, colleges, adult-training centres, careers, and the job centre.
