The property has four purpose-built apartments where each apartment has two exits and direct access to its own gated outdoor courtyard garden.
In addition, there are communal grounds for the tenants to access. The development has separate staff accommodations.
The two step-through and two permanent flats are self-contained with their own outside space and shared outdoor space.
Permanent accommodation is for people who want to live in the community renting their own accommodation but need significant support.
Step-through accommodation is appropriate for people who need support people coming out of restrictive environments to prepare them fully for community living. It is also for people living in community settings at risk of being admitted to more restrictive environments.
The step-through flats support people to adapt to living independently, build confidence in managing their behaviour that may challenge, and prepare for independent living through managing their tenancy. By offering a safe environment with skilled staff, people supported in our step-through programme receive ongoing involvement and support from the outreach team that will continue to provide support as needs change over time.
The onsite support manager has significant experience and has worked at Little Glen for five years.
All staff receive PROACT-SCIPR training based on evidence and values and takes the ‘whole-person approach’ to supporting people whose behaviour can be of concern and in turn, can restrict their own lives and independence. and the staff team.
In addition to mandatory training and Care Certificate requirements, staff receive specific training to meet the unique needs of the people they will be supporting including diabetes, dysphagia, or ligature training.
