One Nine Five specialises in the care of young adults aged between 18 and 30 years and aims to help them develop the skills required to live with support in the community or to prepare them for life in a suitable residential home.
The focus at One Nine Five is to ensure each young adult gets to reach their full potential regardless of the barriers in their way. We work in a truly holistic, multi-disciplinary way where the divisions between care and learning are integrated. We are unique in our approach in that the care staff provide young adults learning opportunities that can be linked to achieving recognised qualifications, allowing them to thrive and develop their independence. We value the insight and knowledge parents have about the needs of their child and the best way to support them. We work closely with parents throughout their child’s time with us.
The care staff are extremely experienced and receive comprehensive on-going training to keep them at the forefront of best practice. Young adults are also supported by local health care professionals that include Occupational Therapists, Speech and Language Therapists and a Psychotherapist.
We have a flexible approach and always focus on the needs of the young adult. This is reflected in the care packages we can offer. Our care packages are bespoke and flexible, focusing on the needs of the young adult at this very specific time in their lives whilst working towards their future life goals.
We currently have two, three bedroom apartments and one four bedroom apartment each with their own lounge and kitchen. Eight of the bedrooms have ensuites and two bedrooms have shared bathroom facilities.
The small living groups enable us to ensure the compatibility of peer groups, whilst enabling our young adults to build positive friendships and develop key group living skills, such as compromise, ready for their move into a more permanent living arrangement.
