Brunswick House is a supported living service for individuals with a learning disability or mental health diagnosis. We support people to live as independently as possible and our aim is to learn new life skills to enable them to move on to living in the community in their own home. To achieve these outcomes, we work with the individual (and their family, friends, and wider supporter networks) to create strengths-based support plans. As we are all unique, there is no one model of support. Instead, we offer flexible staff teams and structures, able to react and adjust to changing needs and ambitions. This ensures support is individual focused, rather than organisation focused.
At the supported Living service, Brunswick House, we have 3 bedrooms with shared bathrooms. There is a large communal living room, dining room and kitchen – where we support individuals to learn daily living skills. This adaptability ensures support is built around the individual, and that every ambition (from wanting to make their own cup of coffee through to finding a job) receives the focus, time and ongoing motivation required to help them be achieved and celebrated!

My life as a service manager as been a little bit of an roller coaster the last 3 and half years. I am 56 years old female but came into this service 2013. I was currently employed with the company Marran as a deputy manager learning the ropes slowly with the current manager at that time in the service. But early January 2018 the service manager took ill so I had to step into his position fast only expecting to do the role for a coupe of months on his return, but unfortunately he didn’t return he passed away so I was thrown into the deep end very quickly and learnt the role that I now do daily basically on my own with on small amounts of knowledge of responsibilities of the mangers role. When I look back at my last years I can see that I have developed skills and knowledge that I wasn’t aware of as my time of the deputy role. In august 2018 the company was purchased by Fair homes/ Adjuvocare and we have encountered many problems and issues over the last three years within the service but will the support of a valued staff team we have got by and hopefully now at the end of a long journey of changes the service as encountered. When I started my journey into care sector 12 years ago I faced a lot of challenges in my various work roles within care starting off in the community doing domiciliary care which I loved every minute of the role, but decided I needed more challenges so I went into complex care where I cared for a young individual on a life support machine this is where I learnt lots of knowledge and skills within this role and felt very appreciated that I had been given this chance but as I learnt about different structures of care needs I came more interested in mental health this led me to make a decision to move into mental health this led to me to obtaining two job position with two different service one of them was the job position I took led me to Miltoun house which I have worked for the last 8 years supporting individuals with mental health and learning disabilities I love the challenges that we encounter on a daily basis this job role is very rewarding I look forward to coming into the service each day. The service started off in 1989 as residential care service we have 3 services Miltoun house, arran house, Brunswick House all offering support to individuals with every day tasks supporting these individuals to achieve goals in life and just recently we went through a de-registration process we are now a supportive living unit these changes happened in February 2021 this as made a massive change to how we deliver the support to each individuals within our 3 services.
