At Ridgecott, all individuals are supported by experienced staff who have a good understanding and empathy of the needs of people with autism and related conditions and who enable their physical, intellectual, emotional, and social needs to be met.

Each person has a person-centred plan, which they help design, and each plan is specifically designed to reflect their personal needs and choices. Each person is assigned a key worker who ensures a holistic approach to their support.

Living at Ridgecott

We encourage individuals to develop feelings of security and to form relationships with others in the immediate and extended community. We also actively encourage the involvement of family members to further support each person we assist and seek to involve them in discussions concerning their welfare.

Everyone we support is encouraged through their person-centred plans to achieve their goals and aspirations. For some people, this means attending college to access various courses, including cooking, art, and daily living skills. For others, it means work placements and other day-to-day opportunities in line with their goals.

It is our aim to assist each person in the development of skills that will enable their full participation in the life of the immediate and wider community and to live the life they want to.
