Living at Seashell

Accommodation

Seventeen home-from-home houses, built in 2015/16 and specifically adapted for children and young people with a range of disabilities provide a pleasant and attractive living environment in a community setting within Sir Norman Stoller Way.

Sir Norman Stoller Way

Our 4-bedroomed en suite houses, most of which are two storey with some single storey houses provide a range of environments which can offer both low stimulus or high levels of structure depending on need.  We encourage our children and young people to participate in making the environment as person-centred as possible, such as displaying their own art work and shopping for household items.

Social and Leisure Activities

Children and young people are encouraged and supported to participate in a wide range of social and leisure activities that are stimulating and fun, both on site and in the local community. We create individual activity timetables and ensure they take into account preference whilst enabling the achievement of long-term goals as part of a person-centred approach across education and residence.

It is our ethos that children and young people develop skills both on and off site with an emphasis on independence and communication skills.  Staff work closely together along with other professionals, parents/carers and the children and young people to ensure that therapy, communication, daily living skills, social,  creative and behaviour support programmes continue in all areas of life.
