Residential step-down service young adults aged 16 to 25

Acrefield House is a safe, therapeutic, and nurturing environment for young adults. With a Consultant Psychiatrist and a Registered Mental Health/Learning Disability Nurse as clinical support, it enables a step-down placement from hospital.

Our home also supports young adults from a range of previous placements, such as, Foster Care and premature placement into Semi Supported or Supported Living. Or often bridging the gap for a child, that has outgrown a Children’s service and requires to be supported in adult residential environment, with a view to future independence.

As a 5-bed residential home, including a Semi- Independent flat provision, we aim to give “Extra care accommodation” supporting young adults from varying backgrounds, transition to an independent setting, that is appropriate to their needs, and in line with their rights, choices, wishes and needs. 

Acrefield House offers our young adults a safe living environment, supporting and empowering independence, whist encouraging life choices and Social and Professional aspirations.

The home is designed, equipped, and maintained to provide safety, and a living environment that promotes a balance between, privacy, inclusion, fun, enjoyment, and independent living.

We believe that very Individual has the right to live as independently as possible with a choice of support that enables positive outcomes.

Our Vision for people with a Learning Disability, and Autistic people with Mental Health conditions and/or behaviour that challenges, is based on the principle that every individual has a positive contribution to make to society. Individuals have a right to be a part of their community, and the right to control their own lives, with a real voice in the support they require to live a fulfilling and meaningful life.
