About the service

Six newly refurbished, self-contained apartments, the service on Sparken Hill in Worksop is designed to promote independence through a person centred focus giving the individuals an environment they need to thrive.

Our respite apartments are aimed towards those individuals looking for a little time away from their home to relax and our innovative support through our utism practitioners to learn new skills in a safe environment.

There is also a focus for the other apartments to deliver support to individuals who might otherwise be admitted to hospital who aspire to independent living and through support of Autism Practitioners and Senior Autism Practitioners are encouraged to maintain their independence and helping them plan their next step in life.
