28 Sep 2015
Precious Homes’ supported living service, Tréow House, has been shortlisted for the UK’s leading healthcare awards.
The LaingBuisson Awards, which celebrate innovation and stand out performance in the social care sector, have selected Tréow House as a finalist in the Supported Living category.
Tréow House in Houghton Regis, Bedfordshire, supports individuals with learning disabilities, autism spectrum disorders, mental health issues and challenging behaviour to become more independent and confident and to successfully integrate into the community.
The service supports 15 individuals in their own self-contained flats alongside communal areas for socialising and social skill development.
Individuals are supported to develop the skills needed to live more independently, happily and healthily, with the aim of moving onto independent living in the community over time.
Treow House has been recognised as a specialist service that demonstrates innovative thinking and approaches, securing the best outcomes for people they support.
Tréow House Manager, Jo Rodell said: “We are delighted to have been nominated for this award and it’s a huge credit to my team who work tirelessly to ensure we always implement best practice.
“Our tenants and their needs are at the heart of the support we provide, they inspire us to innovate and move our service forwards.”
Precious Homes Managing Director, Mitesh Dhanak said: “I’m immensely proud of our team at Tréow House and the great work that they do.
“I’ve seen first hand the difference that they make to their residents’ lives and they thoroughly deserve this nomination.”
The LaingBuisson award winners will be announced at a Gala Dinner on 11 November at the Lancaster Hotel in London, hosted by broadcaster and former Conservative Party MP The Rt Hon Michael Portillo.
