Developing Independence

Developing independent living skills is a key aspect of our work.

We aim to prepare young people to live independently after they have left Owlswick regardless of their level of ability. The care team support young people to develop skills in the following areas:

We have developed a self-contained flat, which is the independent living space for our older young people, aged 14 plus as appropriate. This residential area enables individuals to embrace the challenges which young adults experience when developing independence, whilst still receiving ongoing life-skills support from our care team.
