Kingsbury, North London
We offer supported living plus services for autistic people and people with learning disabilities based in Kingsbury, Brent. Our Supported Living plus service provides individualised and proactive support for people who are preparing for more independent living.
With a qualified, experienced, and committed Support Team, the service is ideal for people who need support to develop the confidence and skills required for independent living, or as a step-down service for someone moving on from a secure setting.
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 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 includes four self-contained flats each with a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, and living and dining space. This includes one studio-style flat with an open plan kitchen and living room and en-suite bedroom.
One of the flats is located on the ground floor and is fully accessible, making it suitable for people with physical disabilities or mobility needs. Further adaptations will be tailored to individual needs.
The spacious and modern environment has been finished to a high standard and has capacity to be developed further to meet individual environmental needs.
There is also a communal garden and outdoor area comprising a decking area, hot tub, and sunken trampoline.
Our Supported Living Plus services offer a step down for people who are ready to move away from residential care but who may need more support than supported living settings. This enables us to offer a higher level of initial support with a clear pathway for reducing support over time as people become more independent.
Accomodation is provided by Golden Lane Housing, who support people to maintain their own tenancies.
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.
Based in Kingsbury in Brent, the flats are well situated within a vibrant and diverse community. They offer easy access to local shops, restaurants, and colleges, and has excellent transport links into London.
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.
