The Haven

Our Support

The Haven provides specialist support for 14 adults with Mental Health needs, Acquired Brain Injuries, Learning Disabilities and Physical Health needs. We encourage and motivate each person to feel good about themselves and support them to gain confidence and do the things that are important to them and ultimately to lead happy and fulfilled lives. Everybody supported at The Haven has a voice about what matters in their lives and our support is focused on ensuring that their voice is heard about every aspect of their lives. We see active support as a quality measure of the level of involvement that people have in determining their own lives.

Person Centred Planning/Outcome Focused Support

We provide positive, flexible and encouraging support for everyone. Our person-centred approach, enables people to achieve their goals and aspirations in life. Our staff support each person to create a person-centred plan that tells us how they want to live their life now and in the future. Through a range of communication tools, we ensure that each person is closely involved in the development of their own plan. For some people we support we use the Recovery Star Model, an outcomes-based measurement tool recognised by the Department of Health. By using the Recovery Star, we are able to support a person’s recovery by measuring progress in areas including managing their Mental Health, enhancing living skills, building and maintaining social networks and building self-esteem to maximise independence.

Our staff are also trained in using tools such as the Active Support Model. This is a tool used to ensure people are involved with every aspect of their lives through carefully planned interventions and mentoring which enables development. The Active Support Model is outcomes focused, which allows monitoring of progress towards maximised participation.

Our Clinical Support Team

Our experienced and well trained staff are supported by our Autism Advisor, Clinical Support Team, Acquired Brain Injury Advisor and Behavioural Advisors. Their role is to work collaboratively with staff to develop and review support plans and introduce proactive strategies. Working alongside staff teams, they support people at times of extreme challenge or crisis. Our staff team can also access Consultancy Psychiatry, Psychology, Occupational Therapy and SALT support as required.
