What we offer
We provide caring supported living and outreach support, helping and enabling autistic people we support to live in their own homes and make their own choices about the lives they want to lead.
The level of support we provide depends on the needs and wishes of the individual. We have highly specialised teams who provide 24/7 support to people who need a high level of care. They may live with others or on their own. We also provide outreach support to people who are able to live independently, but who need a little bit of extra help.
We are highly trained in supporting autistic adults with complex and challenging needs, and deliver two specialist ‘transition’ services, for young adults moving into a supported living house, and for adults who are moving out of long-term hospital care. Our work with Individual Service Funds, to help move people on from inappropriate long-term inpatient institutions and into their own homes, has been included in case studies used to become part of a national agenda informing other local CCG’s and local authorities.
We employ a practice team, which provides enhanced support when needed, as well as additional support form clinical psychologists when required. We deliver the Oxfordshire Adult Autism Diagnosis Service.
Autism at Kingwood is committed to helping autistic adults to live as independently as they choose and to access their local community. Our horticultural/DIY project and social activities throughout the year provide additional community engagement opportunities.
Working with trained dogs in collaboration with the charity Dogs for Good, we support a small number of people through animal assisted support.
We invest in high-quality training and development and we are proud of our 300+ employees. Our support staff are required to demonstrate they have the knowledge and skills required by Skills for Care and the Care Quality Commission in the Care Certificate. Staff are also supported to gain higher level qualifications such as QCF Awards, Certificates and Diplomas.
