Newlands accommodates up to eight adults who have a learning disability and who may also have an autistic spectrum disorder and mental health needs. Newlands is a large detached single storey house situated in Colchester and close to all amenities. The premises provide each person using the service with their own individual bedroom and adequate communal facilities for people to make use of within the service.
The service has been developed and designed in line with the principles and values that underpin registering the right support and other best practice guidance. This ensures that people who use the service can live as full a life as possible and achieve the best possible outcomes. The principles reflect the need for people with learning disabilities and/or autism to live meaningful lives that include control, choice, and independence. People using the service receive planned and co-ordinated person-centred support that is appropriate and inclusive for them.
Newlands is part of the Pathways Care Group which was established in 2004 and is now a major provider of specialist personalised residential care for adults and young people with a variety of complex care needs, including those with learning disabilities, autism, mental health disorders and physical disabilities. The group currently operates 54 residential and supported living homes across England, in addition to a day care service in Birmingham.
Pathways Care Group does only one thing and has only one objective. We Care. In every possible meaning of that word.
Our Mission is to create a meaningful and fulfilled life for the people who use our services by delivering individualised care, support and education.
