Residential homes reimagined

At Progress we provide residential services for children and young adults aged between 5-25 who are affected by all types of disability. Whatever the reason or length of their stay, our goal is to make sure everybody has a positive experience and leaves with their life improved in some way.

We start with a dedicated plan designed to develop life skills and help them become the best they can be. This could mean teaching self-management to help them to return to the family home, working intensely to reduce the barriers to living in a foster home, or preparing them for independent living.

We also believe in the importance of the simple things, like providing home-cooked foods, promoting a healthy lifestyle and encouraging participation in daily life. The purpose of our residential homes is to make young people feel safe, comfortable and valued. Just as they would in any normal family home.

We’ve developed this specialism over many years and are extremely proud of our high staff retention rates and ability to deliver stable and consistent care and support to the young people who need us.

Check out our locations

All of our locations are individually tailored to suit the requirements of individuals with a range of specific complex needs. To find a location that would be perfect for you or your loved one, begin by filtering our residencies by selecting a relevant age category.
