Gensing Road outreach services
Gensing Road provides supported living accommodation to individuals who have Autism Spectrum Condition or Aspergers and associated complex mental health conditions such as OCD, Depression, Anxiety, ADHD, ADD and PTSD.
Tenants are supported in their own flats to live as independently as possible with specialist, person centred support. Each tenant has their own personalised flat including bedroom, living area, bathroom and kitchen. There are also communal areas within the building which includes a lounge area, kitchen and outside decked seating area. A tenancy agreement is issued at the start of the tenancy and with a focus on outcomes; we aim to support each individual to progress towards independent living within the community, thereby ensuring less reliance on paid support.
The level of support is agreed with the prospective tenant and the responsible funding authority at the point of referral. A personalised support plan is developed with the individual, based on an in-depth assessment of need, individual’s interests and supported hours. From this a personalised timetable will be created. Each individual has a key worker who focuses on the individuals needs and monitors support regularly through reviews and meetings. Gensing Road staff team offer a huge variety of different support skills to enable us to meet individual’s needs.
Gensing Road is staffed 24 hours a day- (staffed overnight by a night warden) CCTV cameras monitor the premises at all times. The staff team are dedicated and well trained striving to ensure each tenant maximises their full potential in order to develop their independent living skills. Gensing Road staff team comprises of one manage, 2 deputy managers, 4 senior support workers and support workers.
“My 24yr old severely autistic son with challenging behaviour and other problems is supported on an outreach programme by a strong team within Aspens at Gensing Road.
The team is led by Manager William Lord. He is extremely helpful and friendly and was very accommodating recently at a very sad and stressful time we experienced with the passing of a family member.
The support staff were absolutely outstanding with my son, sensitive discreet and hugely supportive. They both truly represent Aspens to the highest level.” – Susan.
