Charnwood Lodge (formerly part of Craegmoor) is a specialist residential home for people with autism and complex behaviour, situated in Nanpantan near Loughborough in Leicestershire. We aim to provide innovative person centred support programmes in a safe and enabling environment.
Our approach to support
Our primary focus is to work intensively with the people who use our service to promote the skills and confidence that lead to increased independence and reduced support needs. By this method we can continue to work towards greater level of independence tailored to an individual's progress in the community. It is our belief that this will help improve self-esteem and provide the basic 'tools' to live in a more independent setting in the future.
On a monthly basis the service holds 'Your Voice' meetings, which are chaired by those who use our service and a member of staff. During these meetings, social events are planned where everybody's opinion about how our service is run can be heard. Any other concerns that are raised during these meetings can also be addressed.
