An intensive supported living service for men with complex conditions.

Welcome to Thornton Avenue, a supported living care service in Streatham, South West London. We provide care and support for individuals aged 18 to 65 who have epilepsy, learning difficulties, acquired brain injuries, behavioural issues, learning disabilities, autism and Asperger’s syndrome. 

Everyone at Thornton Avenue is committed to making people’s lives better, enabling our tenants to achieve their hopes and dreams through round the clock access to unprecedented levels of care and support. Our vision is to make a difference; to enable people to optimise their potential and enjoy full, rewarding lives.

Active Care Group‘s core values are a commitment to putting the individual at the heart of everything we do, providing a seamless, personalised package of care that reflects the users wishes, hopes and expectations, taking the time to get it right.

Our boutique-led approach is based on a foundation of detailed planning and strategy with all stakeholders to derive a person-centred care model shifting from limitations to assets, through this collaborative alignment we are able to maximise the positive outcomes for our tenants.

Thornton Avenue is a beautiful family townhouse situated in the heart of Streatham, South West London. This pleasant residential home is made up of six large bedrooms, a spacious communal lounge, a dining area, and a tranquil garden with on-site parking. 

We monitor our people with their daily living skills, medical needs, emotional support, and encouragement while recording and monitoring all significant progress. Key working sessions run on a monthly basis to set goals for our people to achieve, these goals are shared with the whole team so everyone we support has their own individual living plan.

We offer a wide range of activities within and outside of the house such as a large TV, games console, pool tables, dart boards and a computer, our residents can develop a great home social life.
