St Martin’s provides college accommodation in two bungalows. Every student has their own room, some with en-suite facilities, and overhead hoisting is available for those who need it.
Being away from home is a big challenge and we strive to create an environment that reassures students by working closely with their families and carers prior to them staying. They are confident that their needs will be met in a family-orientated setting, where everyone is valued.
Residential students and their families have the added reassurance of 24 hour nursing support during the week and overnight at weekends.
The dedicated, caring and highly-trained staff at St Martin’s work closely together, endeavouring to provide new activities and opportunities to inspire the students to achieve the optimum level of participation and independence. They are encouraged to take responsibility and be involved in their care programmes at whatever level is appropriate to them. We provide person-centred programmes where individual needs guide the specialist support the students receive.
We aim to provide the residential experience most suitable to the students and we offer single overnights, short breaks, weekly boarding through to the fortnightly residential where students are able to visit their homes every other weekend and maintain their links with their home authorities and local communities.
