County Durham

A residential care service focussing on supporting adults with complex needs.

Located in Hartlepool, County Durham, we support people with autism, learning disabilities and complex needs towards building confidence and independence. At Burbank Mews we treat each resident as an individual, listening to their wants and needs so we can tailor a package of care and environment which reflects our residents wishes.

Burbank Mews is a purpose-built service for people with learning disabilities, autism and complex needs. The service ethos is based on the principles of enhancing quality of life through positive behaviour support and we can support people who present behaviours that challenge. We can support 12 adults in single occupancy accommodation which has ample space for people with sensory needs as well as separate rooms for staff.

Each resident’s care starts with a support plan, considered to be a live document, which changes as often as people we support change. In addition, each resident has a Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) Plan which is used in conjunction with the support plan and is crucial in supporting people towards an improved quality of life.

Located at the heart of the community, people are supported to access local educational, employment and leisure opportunities. Burbank staff work closely with the community teams for people with learning disabilities, including psychiatry, psychology, SALT and occupational therapy and support opportunities for community integration by developing links with employers and other local services.

Located in the centre of Hartlepool, people at Burbank Mews are supported to access local educational, employment and leisure opportunities. Burbank Mews is within easy reach of local attractions, such as the nearby town of Seaton Carew, Hartlepool Marina with its variety of shops and restaurants, as well as The National Museum of the Royal Navy. Burbank Mews is a short walk to the town centre and local supermarkets. Hartlepool offers a range of public transport facilities including buses for local travel and Hartlepool train station is close by for those wishing to venture further afield.

People living at Burbank Mews also take part in the group outcome project, which identifies pathways to achieving independent living skills as well as planning for fun events such as a holiday.
