As young people progress to Newton house they being to learn how to manage more independently their own personal care and are supported to continue their development and interest in a variety of social care activities and other learning opportunities.
Young people are encouraged to work on initiating and maintaining friendships and on developing their own confidence and self-awareness. There is a continuous focus on helping young people to understand and appreciate how their behaviour and actions impact on others
Whilst continuing to work on all aspects of personal care, peer interaction and team membership, developing independent living skills in preparation for life is a central focus. Young people are supported to consider, and practically apply, more specific skills such as learning how to travel independently, access to local community resources and leisure facilities.
Young people are supported by our designated Life Skills Worker who ensures that, as well as building up a wide repertoire of everyday skills, all areas are accredited under the OCR Life and Living Skills Qualification.
Newton House has undertaken a significant upgrade. All bedrooms are en-suite and come with a choice of fitted bedroom furniture as standard. It has its very own Cinema Room and a snooker table for use by all.
