Overview Of Tolcarne Avenue

Tolcarne Avenue is an Autism-Specific Residential Service providing individualised support in a nurturing and homely environment, where people’s rights, independence and choices are actively promoted.

The service supports up to 3 adults (18-65 year olds) with the following needs:

  • Autism
  • Learning Disabilities
  • Behaviours which may be described as challenging
  • May be stepping down from a secure setting or may have experienced previous placement breakdowns

Each individual is provided with their own bedroom, living room and ensuite alongside a variety of internal and external communal space.

The team at Tolcarne Avenue work with the individual and their wider support teams to create clear pathways for adults on their journey to independence.

With qualified, experienced and flexible team members, each person is able to maximise their potential and increase their independence in a community setting.

Jackie has Autism and Bipolar Disorder and can sometimes experience very low days due to her mental health.

Community Integration

Tolcarne Avenue is set within the heart of the Milton Keynes community and is within easy reach of local shops, facilities and transport links.

With Badminton Central, Bounce Trampolining, line dancing, snooker and a number of further leisure facilities nearby, individuals living at Tolcarne Avenue enjoy regularly accessing the community. Individuals at the service also frequently visit the centre of Milton Keynes with its variety of restaurants, colleges, health and leisure facilities and the ‘Groovy Gecko’ monthly disco.

The team regularly link with our other Milton Keynes services to share, plan and join activities together, as part of increasing social development and integration.

I like the staff, they look after me…this is my home.

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.
