Based in St Albans, Oster House is a Supported Living Service that supports autistic adults and/or adults with learning disabilities and associated needs.

At Oster House, we focus on supporting people to live more independently and to achieve their personal goals – whether that’s learning to cook, getting out to see friends, attending youth club, getting a job, or going to college. We mix support with with positive challenges, at each person’s pace, to enable personal choice and promote independence and self-confidence.

Support is based on each person’s skills, needs, aspirations, activities, and lifestyle and can be anything from a few hours a day to a 24-hour support team, with additional support from our in-house multi-disciplinary team if required.

Our Multi-Disciplinary Team

Input from our in-house Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT) can be provided on top of a person’s support when people we support require further therapeutic and behavioural support and intervention. This is an additional resource for people who have had input and cost agreed with the person supported and/or their funding authority.

Input can range from 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 Psychology and Speech and Language Therapy (SALT). We also work closely alongside external MDT partners including Behavioural Specialists, Psychiatry, Occupational Therapy, dieticians and fitness experts.

The Support workers always put my relative at the centre of any planning, discussions and decisions on their care needs – Relative – Oster House
