Manor Farm

Our Support

Manor Farm supports ten adults with a dual diagnosis of Autism and Learning Disabilities. We work in partnership with family members and the people we support, to provide support that enables individuals to live with their Autism with hope and optimism and work towards a truly valued lifestyle.

We offer a person centred and Autism friendly approach for every autistic person supported. Staff encourage people to gain self-awareness and an increased understanding of their own Autism. This ensures that the support we provide, makes the most of the gifts and skills their Autism can bring, as well as seeking to reduce the difficulties each person may face.

Our Approach

The need to support and encourage self-esteem by motivating people to feel good about themselves and their achievements is central to the care provided at Manor farm. Everyone is supported to gain confidence and do the things that are important to them and ultimately to lead happy and fulfilled lives. We encourage everyone to have a voice about what matters in their lives and the support provided is focussed on ensuring that their voices are heard and listened to.

Each person we support liaises with their key worker to discuss their likes, interests, goals and aspirations. These could include starting a college course, having a job, wanting to cook or just having the confidence to go to the shops. Staff support people towards achieving their goals. This may require social stories, education on social rules, understanding body language and facial expressions.

Our Focus

Manor Farm have a proactive Autism Strategy in place, which aims to promote independence and positive experiences. Staff support people to manage and learn to accept themselves as autistic individuals with their own unique set of strengths as well as any struggles they face. Everyone supported at Manor Farm have unique skills and abilities and staff endeavour to provide meaningful opportunities, which enables individuals to express their personalities and raise their self-esteem, by really valuing everyone’s gifts and skills. We provide a quality service built on respect, trust and honesty and believe in offering equal opportunities to all while recognising and respecting difference.

At Manor Farm we understand the challenges that social interaction presents for autistic individuals and we seek to develop each person’s social ability, both in the home and out in the community where they are encouraged to practice new skills.

Positive Outcomes

Our positive and encouraging approach has successfully worked, with individuals currently accessing training, volunteering, attending college and where possible employment opportunities.

The staff are enthusiastic and willing to try another approach when a certain approach may not work. Whether this means researching different activities to ensure it is suitable or being brave and trying something different. The sky is the limit and the staff ensure that the people who live at Manor Farm are enjoying their lives whilst trying new things.

Autism Profiles

With support from the company Autism Advisor, we have developed a profile of the way Autism impacts each person living within our service. The Autism profile highlights the person supported strengths as well as the areas where support is needed. Each Autism profile summarises the diagnostic criteria and creates a picture that is both Autism focussed and person specific. Through this, staff can work in a truly person-centred and Autism intelligent way.

Accommodation

Manor Farm is a detached house surrounded by large gardens. Within the main house are ten en-suite bedrooms, a communal lounge, kitchen and dining room, art/games room. Outside in the garden is our sensory lodge and movie room.
