Fir Tree Lodge is a specialist supported living care service for adults.

Situated in Caterham, Surrey the service is made up of three houses, each containing two self-contained flats. The flats at Fir Tree Lodge are furnished and contain kitchens, and living/dining areas. Support can be called for at the touch of a button as each flat is equipped with a call point system. 

Our experienced team have been trained to meet the needs of the wide range of complex needs at Fir Tree Lodge, providing 24-hour support to the people who use our services.

Our person-led approach is driven through bespoke support plans and outcomes for people. Where required, our ethos of delivering support through the fundamental principles of positive behaviour support (PBS) is also in place. The aim of our PBS framework is not merely to reduce levels of challenging behaviour for people, but to improve quality of life.

We understand that all the people we support have different needs, so alongside their key workers, families, and medical professionals, we ensure that the support we provide is bespoke in every detail. Each person has a comprehensive support plan which covers every aspect of their care and support, taking in to account any concerns and issues that may arise and ensuring all needs and requirements are met enabling them to live the very best life possible.

The property has been purpose built to meet various physical and complex needs, with special consideration to ensure the environment focuses on enabling those we support to live full and independent lives. 

We look after the person as a whole, caring for their wants and needs, both physically and emotionally, fostering an environment of personal growth, inclusion, honesty and integrity, leading our tenants to live the most rewarding lives.

A key worker will meet with each tenant each month on a one-to-one basis to discuss their goals and aspirations. These sessions will be for any concerns or issues they may have and to provide support and communication. In these sessions, they can plan and carry out leisure, employment, and college activities if this will be pro-active towards their targets.  We can also provide support with relationships and budgeting if required. Our tenants will have a dedicated member of staff to communicate with, however all staff are available to always help.

  • Learning disabilities
  • epilepsy
  • brain injury
  • autism
  • sensory impairment
  • mental Health
  • physical disabilities
  • other complex needs
