Living at Seashell

Accommodation

Our residences provide pleasant and appropriate living environments that are specifically adapted for children and young people with a range of disabilities.

Our houses and appartments range from small 2-bedroom homes to larger 10-bedroom houses providing a range of environments which can offer both low stimulus or high levels of structure depending on the needs of the individual.  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.
