Broughton Lodge

London Road, Oak Grove, Macclesfield, SK11 0JG

Broughton Lodge is a specialist residential service for adults with autism and a learning disability who may present with behaviours that challenge.

We aim to provide a safe, comfortable and effective care environment for those in our care, promoting independence and community integration. On site we have our multi-disciplinary team (MDT) who assist and support us to provide outcome based care and support pathways.

Depending on the individual’s level of need, we have 3 different areas within the service offering different levels of support, including support for young men and women leaving an educational provision:

  • Sutton (8 beds) & Langley (8 beds) provide a high level of support for individuals who may be stepping down from a hospital setting or has experienced multiple placement breakdowns.
  • Bosley (4 beds) supports individuals who are preparing to move onto supported living. They provide a structured programme of vocational activity and daily living skills to enable the individual to experience a less restrictive environment safely.

As part of our care pathway, our service enables residents to build upon earlier learnt skills to achieve further independence, self-advocacy and confidence leading to better quality of life. Residents can gain skills through extended learning via accredited platforms.

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