Registered Care, Domiciliary Care /

Specialist Supported Living

The Trust provide registered care, domiciliary care and specialist supported living, see below a list of all the Trust’s sites across Kent and Medway.


The Trust supports people using a personalised approach. We have been working with individuals on the autism spectrum since 1989 and we have learnt that a person centred support service that is flexible and adjustable is essential.


The combination of this approach together with our wide experience and knowledge of how we can best support people with autism means that we can provide staffed support in a wide range of settings and to support a broad range of need.

The Trust offers all year round living support. We can provide this in people’s own or family homes and within single or shared accommodations. We are able to provide rented single person and shared accommodation, within small homes for up to six people.


Some of our homes are registered with the Care Quality Commission and regular inspection reports are available on the Care Quality Commission website.


We also provide support for people from self-contained flats in shared accommodation with communal areas with the levels of staff determined by the individuals who live there. Staff can be shared to enable a higher overall level of support. This type of support is especially cost effective and flexible for people who want less support.


However a person chooses to get their support from the Trust we believe in an individual, personal approach. Providing sensitive support at the level determined by each individual’s need. We use person centred approaches and work with each person to find the right balance of positive aid for maximum independence, choice and determination. We believe that each person can tell us what they want in their own home and we work hard to ensure that we have all the mechanisms in place to make sure we hear what people tell us whatever their method of communication.


We appreciate the benefits as well as the drawbacks in sharing or not sharing accommodation, especially for autistic people and we work to address the issues for individuals around sharing resources and also those around isolation and loneliness.


Some individuals want a few hours of support a week and others may have very complex needs and want round the clock support. Some people will want this support in their own home or workplace and other people may want to live as a tenant in one of the homes managed by the Trust. We make sure that whatever services we offer we have trained, supportive, consistent and caring staff to provide this personal support.
