About Carlton House

Carlton House provides specialist support for 14 men with autism, learning disabilitiesbehaviours that challenge and associated complex needs. Staff provide 24 hour support for the people who live here, based on their detailed person centred plans and in-depth assessments.

Our approach to support:

At Carlton House, our aim is to support everyone that lives here to be as independent as possible, to reach their full potential and to take responsibility for their lives and for their behaviour.

Our highly skilled in-house staff team of NVQ-qualified support workers are able to support those who are moving from more secure settings who require some element of support due to a learning disability, complex need and/or challenging behaviour.

Carlton House has an ongoing staff development programme that includes specialist training in positive behaviour support. We are supported by external multi-disciplinary teams (MDT) of health professionals and specialist care managers.

What it’s like to live here:

At Carlton House, everyone is encouraged to take part in various activities such as cooking, gardening and baking, as well as getting involved in weekly shopping trips and developing the menus.

People are also supported to engage in community activities such as trips to the cinema, shopping and going on holidays. A life skills coach is also available at the service.

Our home is located in the peaceful and rural village of Rothwell Haigh, and we are within easy reach of Leeds and Wakefield by car or bus – both cities have a wide variety of shops and activities.
