Giving each resident a place they can feel safe
There are eight houses and flats within the Stroud Court complex. They look a lot like ordinary residential homes with kitchens, living areas, bedrooms and bathrooms, and nice outdoor spaces.
Our goal is to create a safe and calm living situation that meets each resident’s unique needs — how much support they require, their tolerance for other people and communal living, and the kind of specialist care they might need.
Our newer houses have been specially designed to accommodate autistic adults, with subtle but significant adaptations that make them truly autism-friendly.
But some of our older homes are in desperate need of either renovation or rebuilding. Based on what we now know about autism, they no longer meet our high standards of care or, more importantly, the very specific needs of our residents.
Right now we’re working hard to raise money to rebuild one particular home, Sycamore House. Read more about A Home for Tom.
