Do you have the passion and determination to make a difference in the lives of people with complex needs?
We offer supported living services in Wood Green, Haringey for autistic adults or adults with learning disabilities, who are largely independent or working towards living independently. Accommodation is managed by Golden Lane Housing, with support provided by Precious.
We work closely with Golden Lane Housing to support people to organise their accommodation, funding, and tenancies. Support is provided by the Precious team, 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.
As an award-winning provider of social care, Precious offers specialised support that is tailored around each individual’s needs. Our supported living and outreach teams work closely with Social Care professionals, Health and Community teams to ensure that support is co-produced with those we support, with a focus on ensuring independence, choice, empowerment and inclusion.
The accommodation is located in the heart of Haringey. People are supported to become as independent as possible while maintaining their own tenancy.
With a qualified, experienced, and committed Support Team, the service is ideal as a step-down service for someone moving on from a secure or residential setting, or those taking the next step on to independence.
There are seven one-bedroom flats set over three stories in two adjacent buildings. Each flat has a bedroom, en-suite bathroom, kitchen, and living and dining space.
Everyone has access to a shared garden that is used regularly in the summer for socialising, including BBQs and family events. Having access to this shared space helps to encourage a sense of community at Burghley Road and reduce social isolation.
Safe and welcoming garden ideal for outside activities, BBQs and gardening when the weather permits.
Flats can be fully personalised to meet individual needs, including hoist tracking systems where required.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Located within moments of Wood Green High Street, the accommodation benefits from being in a location with plenty to do. The team works hard to encourage independence and support people to have new and diverse experiences, in line with their own interests and aspirations.
Activities include visits to Central London, Alexandra Palace, the many restaurants and cafes along Green Lanes, North London colleges and local gyms and leisure centres.
