About St Winnow
St Winnow is a residential service to support the specific needs of people with autism to enable each individual to reach their fullest potential within a safe, structured, stimulating environment.
Our approach to support:
St Winnow is a specialist service that supports people who have been diagnosed with autism. Individuals have varying levels of autism and are all supported by an experienced staff who have a good understanding and empathy of the needs of people with autism and related conditions who enable their physical, intellectual, emotional and social needs to be met.
At St Winnow, each person has a Person Centred Plan, which they help design and each plan is specifically designed to reflect his or her personal needs and choices. Each person is assigned a key worker who ensures a holistic approach to their support.
What it’s like to live here:
Everyone we support is encouraged through their Person Centred Plans to achieve their goals and aspirations. For some people this means attending college to access various courses, including cooking, art and daily living skills. For others it means work placements and other day opportunities in line with their goals.
We encourage the people we support to develop feelings of security and to form relationships with others in the immediate and the extended community. We actively encourage involvement of families in the support of their family member and seek to involve them in discussions concerning the welfare of the person are paramount.
It is our aim to assist each individual in the development of skills that will enable their full participation in the life of the immediate and wider community and live the life they want to.
St. Winnow is situated in a pleasant residential area of Plymstock. Public transport links are good with Plymouth city centre just a short journey away.
