Dashwood is comprised of two separate buildings. The main building consists of six self-contained flats for tenants, three of which are on the ground floor. There is a communal courtyard area for tenants to enjoy. The second building contains the office, staff/visitor toilet, and sleep-in facilities for staff.

All of our flats are comfortable, welcoming and can be personalised to individual tastes. Each flat has its own bedroom, bathroom and either open-plan or separate kitchen and living room areas.

There are three off-road parking spaces for staff and visitors, which are located at the back of the property. In addition, there is further available parking at the front of the property and along the road.

Our approach to support

Everybody who lives at Dashwood has their own person-centred support plan, which is co-produced with input from the individual, their family members and professionals.

We aim to enable each tenant to make their own choices about the support they receive. This may include support in a number of areas, such as maintaining a tenancy, personal care, and support with household tasks such as budgeting, shopping and domestic tasks.

In addition, our team receive specialist staff training, bespoke to the needs of each individual we support. This includes:

  • Autism awareness training
  • Epilepsy awareness training
  • Buccal midazolam administration training

Activities

Everyone who lives at Dashwood is supported to pursue their own interests and hobbies, both in and outside the home, and are encouraged to take part in activities which are meaningful and fulfilling to them.

We focus on supporting tenants to grow their independence. For some people, this may mean developing their daily living skills within their home. For others, this could be accessing work or educational opportunities in the local community.

This includes supporting tenants to attend:

  • Social clubs in the local area, such as the Gateway club
  • Facilities which help them engage in their hobbies and interests, such as the cinema, gym, swimming, bowling alley, animal centre, sensory centres, adult learning
  • Activities and events in surrounding areas, including Aylesbury, Reading and Windsor

Pathways

Through our network of healthcare, residential and supported living facilities, we provide unique care pathways which enable the people we support to progress towards greater independence. Every individual we support is provided with a bespoke pathway plan, tailored according to their individual needs. We aim to ensure that each person is supported to live a fulfilling and active life in the community.
