Situated in the market town of Sudbury, St Faith’s Villa is a residential home that supports adults with autism spectrum conditions, moderate to severe learning disabilities and complex needs, including high levels of physical and communication difficulties. The team are available 24 hours a day with provision available to support sleep-ins.
St Faith’s Villa promotes person-centred support. Their aim and vision is to enable people and encourage their autonomy, independence, and inclusion through a ‘do with, not for’ approach. Each person is at the centre of their own initial assessment before they embark on the transition from their previous setting and support and are fully involved in co-producing their care and support plan. The team establish from the start what information formats the person, their family, carers, and wider circle of support prefer and find most easily accessible. Their approach to coproduction allows for truly person-centred support, with a focus on inclusive communication, intensive interaction, employment, education, and relationships.
