105 people with learning disabilities and autism enjoy living with friends and peers in 33 comfortable, safe and happy households in towns and villages across Oxfordshire.
We work closely with individuals and their families to ensure people we support are enabled to plan their lives and make their own decisions; person-centred care plans detail how people want to be supported.
Individuals can access support from our Speech and Language Therapist, who helps people with their communication needs and to develop their skills. Additionally, our Technology for Independence project offers IT solutions to help people improve their independence at home and with everyday tasks and communication. Many people also take part in the wide variety of social, skills and leisure activities offered by our Day Opportunities teams.
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) rated Style Acre’s supported living as ‘outstanding’ following our most recent inspection. Less than 2% of adult social care services nationally have achieved this rating and this recognises the hard work and dedication of our employees.
The report says: “Everyone spoke of the openness of the service and without exception, people felt valued and listened to.”
From a parent
“As a parent of young adults with additional needs all we have ever wanted is for them to be able to live their lives in the same way as anyone else of their age. In reality this is a tall order. Equality is much talked about, too rarely achieved. Of the many remarkable things about our experience of the care enjoyed by our daughter at Littleworth is that she is treated with thought and respect rather than just as someone with “needs”. Everything the team does is about keeping her and her housemates safe, stimulated and fulfilled. She is not a job or a statistic. Nobody focuses on what she can’t do. The atmosphere in the house is warm and welcoming and everyone living there enjoys a wide range of activities both as individuals and together. It’s home, not “a home.” We are so very grateful the team for creating a life for our daughter that is better than we could have dared dream of. To have peace of mind felt like an impossible aspiration for us. Turns out we were wrong!”
