The team at Holdingham House is able to support individuals with diverse needs including those with:

  • Learning Disabilities
  • Autism Spectrum Conditions
  • Physical difficulties
  • Social, emotional or communication difficulties
  • Behaviours that challenge
Our experienced and well-trained staff provide individualised care and a clear Positive Behavioural Support pathway to promote independence and choice. We recognise that a good quality of life, an excellent quality environment and building self-esteem are paramount for people with complex needs. There is a universal commitment within the whole of Glenholme to treat those we support and their families with dignity and respect.

Holdingham House is a purpose-built high-intensity specialist home, designed to better support the needs of people who have profound and severe needs and risks related to behaviours that may challenge; including those that have previously experienced difficulties with finding suitable long-term placements, or a breakdown of placements with other providers who were unable to meet their complex needs. These often relate to their learning disability, autism spectrum disorder, personality disorder, self-injury and aggression.

We support the individual to gain confidence and feel safe with the people who are working with them. We create a package of support that is based on a community inclusive outlook in their local area and work with the support networks of the individual to maintain the crucial links that promote positive wellbeing and control for the individual.

Holdingham House was completed in 2020 and consists of six spacious rooms. Designed to cater to its residents’ needs; the home features large communal living areas and activity rooms, and low arousal interiors. Each resident has their own private outdoor space as well as access to a communal garden. This service also has a sensory room which provides a multi-sensory environment with visual, tactile and audible equipment which can be enjoyed passively and interactively.
