Tailored Design

Merlin Mews has been designed to support 8 individuals with learning disabilities, autism and behaviours that may be described as challenging to develop the independence, daily living skills and confidence necessary to move onto more independent living over time.

It consists of 8 spacious one-bedroom flats, alongside access to the communal living room. Each flat contains a bedroom, bathroom, living room/dining space and kitchen. There are a variety of flats available to meet individual support needs and preferences.

Merlin Mews provides a stepping stone from Red Kite’s Supported Living Plus service to Supported Living. Having both services on the same site ensures a sense of familiarity, supporting each person along an individual care pathway and ensuring an easier transition between the two types of provision.

On site cafe: Taking inspiration from Precious Homes’ successful social enterprise café in Birmingham, the services will also benefit from Gabbiano Café. The cafe will provide opportunities for the people living in both services to develop work skills and confidence in a safe and structured environment.

Communal space: The site benefits from communal space, including covered outside areas, a cafe and activity areas. The space is warm and welcoming, with indoor and outdoor areas designed to encourage interaction, with a range of comfortable space and seating to chat, get involved in communal activities or watch the world go by!

Community integration

Based just outside Gloucester, Merlin Mews benefits from access to local shops, restaurants, sport facilities, social groups and health services. Access to these services plays an essential role in community integration, social skill development and facilitating positive relationships outside of the service. The service also benefits from community links, transport links and a team with extensive knowledge of the local area.

Our Multi-Disciplinary Team

Our in-house Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT) can provide therapeutic and behavioural input on top of a person’s support as an additional resource once agreed individually and/or with the funding authority.

Input can range from clinical consultation; rehabilitative support for someone in crisis; support for complex assessments and transitions; resolving and reducing emotional and behavioural issues through positive behaviour support approaches; observing, training and mentoring support teams; right through to simply being on hand to give extra advice and guidance to our support teams.

Our specialised and highly qualified MDT includes a Clinical Director, Psychology, Occupational Therapy (OT) and Speech and Language Therapy (SALT). Our MDT work in conjunction with our support teams as well as internal Training, Quality and Risk Management and Operational Teams. We also work closely alongside external partners including Behavioural Specialists, Psychiatry, dieticians and fitness experts.

Referrals & Contacts

We provide a rapid response to referrals and will normally arrange a professional assessment within a few days of your call.

 

A full and detailed pre-admission assessment is always carried out, free of charge and without obligation, by our highly experienced team prior to a placement offering being made. This values the unique and complex needs of each person and forms the basis of the individuals support plans if they move into the service.
