Our support Support and accommodation services Supported living Oxfordshire Support Service Petros Gudza (Registered Manager)Peter Dooley (Service Manager)01295 268543[email protected][email protected] Oxfordshire Support Service provides supported living services for adults who have learning disabilities and autism. Provision is currently offered for people living within two supported living schemes (each offering 6 self contained one-bedroom bungalows), one in Banbury and one in Bicester. This service is specifically designed to support people with learning disability, autism and sight loss to live and engage in their local community, as part of the ‘transforming care agenda’. We want to excel as a specialist provider of quality care and support, ensuring the people we support are at the heart of everything we do. Our aim is to enable people to make choices and express their individuality. Personalisation is not a tick box exercise for us, but is fundamental to how we deliver our mission every single day of the year. Access to our specialist support team is available as an integral component of the support service. We offer direct support for individuals in order to develop life skills to the full. The support service includes Positive Behaviour Support Practitioners who offer: functional and environmental assessments; positive behaviour support planning, goal-setting and review; and analysis of behavioural challenges with guidance to minimise and manage these. Visual Impairment Rehabilitation which offers: functional vision assessments; training in mobility and orientation, communication and independent living skills; guidance about assistive technology and advice and awareness training to staff and other professionals. Speech & Language Therapy which offers: eating and drinking (dysphagia) assessments and guidance; and support to develop communication skills. Supported living services are designed to meet daily living, social and personal care needs. These are arranged through a combination of one-to-one; two-to-one and shared support hours. Our facilities and accommodation Oxfordshire Support Service operates from a registered office in Banbury, providing support for people in two supported living schemes in Banbury and Bicester. Tenancies are available in 12 self-contained bungalows and all have access to a communal room and garden area. These properties have been designed specifically to meet the needs of people with autism. An additional supported living scheme will be available in Banbury from Winter 2018 for a further three people who have autism.
