Broughton House

High Street, Brant Broughton, Lincolnshire, LN5 0SL

Broughton House is a 29 bed specialist residential service for adults with autism and who may present with behaviours that challenge. We aim to provide a safe, comfortable and effective care environment for those in our care.

Broughton House is divided into five distinct areas to support people within smaller environments. The main part of the building offers nine beds, with four beds in both the Coach House and The Flat. On site there are two separate properties, Sutton House and Sandbeck House, each with six beds.

Each unit within Broughton House offers the people we support individualised living spaces, creating an environment that will support them for moving along their care pathway to more independent living. As part of their pathway, we enable them to build their skills to help them achieve the things they want out of life. Set in a beautiful rural location, the service has plenty of outdoor space for individuals to enjoy, including countryside walks that help support people who are anxious in crowded spaces. The people we support can gain skills through extended learning on a number of accredited platforms.

Interventions are matched according to individual needs and our life skills development programmes are overseen by the activity coordinators. The integrated MDT consists of occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, psychology and psychiatry. The team supports the development of daily living skills and reduction in maladaptive behaviours.

Our staff use non-aversive positive approaches and are trained in MVA specialised behaviour interventions and sensory integration strategies. A combination of person-centred planning, measurement of progress and a full multidisciplinary approach can only result in the best outcomes for the people in our care.

Situated over the road is No. 12 High Street. Individuals progress through their care pathway to No. 12 High Street to support them towards more independent living.
