Devon Lodge is a specialist residential service for adults with autism and learning disabilities, who may have behaviours that challenge. We aim to provide a safe, comfortable and effective environment, promoting independence and community integration. Person-centred planning is at the heart of everything we do, based on each person’s specific needs. We understand that consistency and continuity of care is important for the individuals we care for.

Devon Lodge

Located in Hedge End, Southampton, Devon Lodge has 12 beds; eight in the main house and four in the annexe. The service has plenty of rest and recreation areas, both inside and outside in the large garden. Perimeter fencing and automatic gates provide a safe and secure environment – yet not at the expense of a homely, comfortable atmosphere.

As part of our care pathway, Devon Lodge enables each individual to build upon their skills to achieve further independence, self-advocacy and confidence, leading to better quality of life. Residents can gain skills through extended learning via a number of accredited platforms.
