A young man we support says ...
"I like to be happy and I really enjoy laughing…. I do that a lot with different staff at where I live.
The staff are encouraging me to be more assertive and I am really happy about that."
Introduction To Our Services
Kingwood is a provider of specialist services for people with autism and Asperger's. Some of the people we support live in their own homes, some live with family members whilst others prefer to live in shared accommodation. Whichever option they choose our aim is the same, to help enable the people we support to make choices and live their lives to the full.
Irrespective of the challenges they face we believe that, given the right support, people with autism can live fulfilled and happy lives which enable them to reach their potential. This is achieved by listening to the wishes and aspirations of the individuals concerned then creating a personal support plan which includes skills for daily living, leading to a greater degree of independence and encouraging a broad range of interests. Some of the people we assist need a great deal of support, others less so, but in every situation the difference that’s made to the life of an individual can be substantial.
Kingwood works in partnership the people we support, their families and commissioners to provide services which are specifically tailored to their personal wishes and choice of home.
Kingwood is committed to developing services for young people with autism which assist them to make the transition from education to adult life in the way that's best suited to their individual wishes and abilities. In the autumn of next year Kingwood will open Kingwood College, a full-time education and training facility for a small group of individuals aged between 18 and 25. For more information about Kingwood College, including how to take part in our fundraising campaign "Buy a Brick" – please click here.
Moving into your own home
We support people to move into their own homes. A first move can be exciting but also scary, so we make sure we get it right. Where people want to move out of their family home or a registered care home, but are not ready to move out straight away, we support them to gradually spend more time in their new homes until they feel comfortable about the move. Take a look at our case studies in the Our People section of this website to see just how successful such moves can be.
Living at home
We also support people who live at home with their families to pursue independent interests and activities according to their personal wishes.
We run a single registered care home which operates under the same philosophy as our supported living services. For registered care services you can view a Statement of Purpose document here.
