Overview

Hesley Village is situated in open countryside within a large 100-acre site about two miles from the small South Yorkshire villages of Tickhill and Rossington. The service provides high standards of accommodation, personal care and support for adults with learning disabilities who often (but not always) have an autistic spectrum disorder. We may occasionally provide services to young adults aged 16 or 17 who are in transition to adult services though generally we support adults aged 18 and above.

Regular monitoring, review and consultation help ensure compliance is maintained.

Preparation and support for people and for their families when moving onto the next stage in their lives through effective transition planning.

Support for people to achieve and maintain the best possible health and access healthcare services as needed.

A safe environment for people through positive risk management, monitoring of outcomes and regular review of risk assessment and support plans.

Our philosophy
We are committed to each person who comes to live with us and believe in their potential and the importance of their indvidual journey. We consider that each of us individually- and collectively as a team- has a responsibility to positively support and enable each person in their progress. Time is precious so we seek to actively attend to this responsibility at all times through every day. We see Hesley Village as just one important step on each person's journey.

Keeping people safe
Hesley Village offers a person-centred approach which aims to support people to develop increasing levels of independence and to create a safe environment for them, in which and from which they can have the best possible opportunities to maximise their potential. We seek to balance risk and a safe and progressive exposure to appropriate, meaningful activities and opportunities. Our safeguarding arrangements sit in this context; our policies, procedures, staff training and quality assurance provide a robust and regularly reviewed framework to this philosophy.

Health and safety
We are committed to ensuring the health, safety and welfare of all those who live and work in, or otherwise access our services. Hesley Village adheres to all procedures in place under the Hesley Group’s Health and Safety Policy.

Equality and diversity
We are committed to enabling people to express their individuality through supporting them in relation to their age, culture, belief, race, disability, sex or sexual orientation. Through our Single Equality Scheme and staff Code of Practice we seek to ensure our services do not discriminate against people who live in or otherwise access our services, or the staff who support them, in relation to the above noted criteria.
