Hilton House has just been approved by Ofsted to provide care and accommodation for young people with learning disabilities. The service occupies a spacious Art Deco building set within a large private garden, providing plenty of space for young people to live and thrive. It has a secure car park and gated access to ensure safety and security. Set within a quiet residential area in Dudley, the home has been completely renovated and designed around the children’s needs.
The service caters for children and young people up to the age of 18, with moderate to severe learning disabilities and associated diagnoses, which may include ASD, ADHD, Cerebral Palsy, and Down’s Syndrome. These young people will have associated sensory and behavioural needs and may use alternative communication methods. The registration covers up to 7 young people, with one of these beds retained for emergency use and pre-admission assessment.
The home will support children and young people to be the best they can be, to progress and develop to achieve their potential. The team will work to reduce the young person’s dependency on support; working on activities for daily living, social skills, communication, confidence and self-esteem, and will ensure they are treated with the dignity and respect they deserve. We work with our partners to facilitate the desired onward journey of each young person in our care, be that returning to the family home, finding a foster family, or moving to semi-independent living when they become an adult.
We are delighted to welcome our first staff members to the new service, along with Joshua Bell as Interim Acting Manager. There will be a phased opening of beds with just two having been released initially, to allow young people and staff teams to settle. Referrals are now being considered for planned admissions to the home, enabling us to further build the staff team with the specific needs of young people in mind.
Please contact our placements team on 01902 561066 to discuss specific young people or email email@example.com
