POST 16


Our semi – independent living project is one of Exceptional Care’s transition services and provides 24-hour supervision and observation within the unit and accommodates no more than young people. This includes a qualified and experienced member of staff who offer a safe, structured and caring environment to young people who are living away from their families.

The provision is set up to provide a small group living environment to provide a homely setting. The small groups allow the young people to receive targeted support and close supervision, whilst being mindful of not being obtrusive, overcoming the issue of lack of engagement whilst ensuring the young person does not feel overwhelmed or overcrowded. Down time / own -time is encouraged. All young people benefit from having their own room which will be individualised and furnished to a high standard. The rooms have ample room for storage and their own belongings and a fridge.

The home has a large open lounge/dining area on the ground floor. This room will be multi purpose for relax time, education and study and the use of a secure internet facility is available within this provision.

A fully modernised kitchen and utility room are also available and the young people are encouraged to engage / use these facilities as part of their independence programme.
