Do you have the passion and determination to make a difference in the lives of people with complex needs?
We offer a supported living service in Birmingham. Accommodation is managed by Golden Lane Housing, with support provided by Precious. Our Supported Living service is designed for autistic adults or adults with learning disabilities, who are working towards living independently.
We work closely with Golden Lane Housing to support people to organise their accommodation, funding, and tenancies. Support is provided by the Precious team (Precious Homes Birmingham), and tailored to meet the specific needs of each person, enabling them to develop the independence, skills, and confidence necessary to move on to more independent living over time.
Our Supported Living service also acts as a step-down service for people who have been supported at our local residential service, Swan Court, or our Supported Living Plus service, which are both close by.
Working with Golden Lane, these Kings Heath-based Supported Living flats consist of seven one-bedroom flats complete with en-suite bathroom, living/dining room, and kitchen.
All flats also have access to a shared living room, offering the perfect mix of personal space and independent living with the opportunity to socialise with friends and take part in activities. The garden area is home to a trampoline, hot tub, and flowering plants and shrubs, with access to polytunnels and greenhouses, and the flats are located within a tree-lined residential street.
We are proud to have committed, proactive, and experienced teams supporting hundreds of people across the UK. Together, we put the needs of the people we support at the heart of everything that we do in order to provide consistent, high-quality care.
Our recruitment process is focussed on values, ensuring that we only employ people who believe in kindness, involvement, quality of life and progress. We provide ongoing training, support and mentoring to ensure that our team have the skills required to deliver high quality care.
In addition to our highly trained support teams, we also have a specialist in-house Clinical Support Team. The Clinical Support Team is a team of specialists from different disciplines, who work closely together to deliver additional support and expertise to the people we support at Precious.
By having an in-house team, we bring together professionals and practitioners from across different sectors to deliver person-centred, holistic care which focuses on the needs of the individual. With no need to apply and wait for support from external teams, we can provide this specialist support quickly and efficiently.
At Precious, we are committed to improving the support we provide by embedding Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) throughout the organisation. At its very core, PBS is about treating people with respect, putting their needs at the centre and enabling them to achieve the quality and enjoyment of life that everyone aspires to.
PBS takes a person-centred approach to identify which areas of support will be most helpful to each individual. This includes working closely with the people we support to make sure that their choices and goals are heard, respected and actioned.
This service is part of our tiered support model, providing a complete Transition Care Pathway from Residential to Supported Living services on the same site. For people with complex needs, or those who struggle with change, this care pathway creates a balance between familiarity and what is new and decreases anxieties around change. This is proven to facilitate smoother and more successful transitions.
Supported Living is focused on developing independence, daily living skills and confidence enabling people to move onto more independent living over time.
We work in partnership with Golden Lane Housing, a not-for-profit organisation that provides specialist landlord services for people with a learning disability. Precious and Golden Lane work together to support individuals to set up, manage and maintain their own tenancies, with daily support provided by Precious.
The flats benefits from close community links and excellent transport links. Nestled in between the vibrant communities of Moseley and Kings Heath, the service benefits from easy access to local shops, restaurants, sports facilities, social groups and health services.
Nearby Highbury Park also adds the benefit of tree-lined green space, within just a few footsteps of the flats.
We provide a rapid response to referrals and we will normally arrange a professional assessment within a few days of your call.
Our highly experienced team will carry out a full and detailed pre-admission assessment, free of charge and without obligation, prior to a placement being offered. This focuses on understanding the unique needs of each person and forms the basis of the their support plans if they move into the service.
