Through understanding we will empower each individual to achieve their aspirations

The Service

Fern House is a 9 bedded property situated in rural Cheshire on the outskirts of the picturesque village of Frodsham. The home is a sizeable property spread over two storeys, consisting of 9 individualised living suites. Each suite includes a bedroom, lounge area and an ensuite for each young person.

The Young People

Fern House is designed to prevent young people with autism, intellectual disabilities, communication difficulties and/or complex behaviours from being placed long term in more restrictive settings such as hospitals or mental health units. It will also enable them to step down from such placements. By following individual transition plans we will support each young person to integrate back into a more typical community setting, in a time period agreed by all stakeholders.

Fern House Supports Young People By

  • Delivering measurable outcomes through research-based practice
  • Preventing continual placement breakdown
  • Bringing families together and building positive relationships
  • Utilising Positive Behaviour Support and Human Factors to positively impact on the quality of life
  • Increasing young people’s engagement with education
  • Delivering on clear and measurable goals
  • Post-transition outreach support to prevent ‘revolving door syndrome’
