Our Homes are for adults with Autistic Spectrum Disorders, and other related conditions, who require specific understanding and high levels of support in order to help them to learn appropriate ways of dealing with their condition, and to be able to transfer acquired skills and knowledge into ways of dealing with other people and situations of everyday living. Our Homes provide a full programme of in-house and community based activities, which are more suitable for clients who are active and able to access a greater degree of independence. Our Homes can cater for residents of either gender, within the age range of 18-55 years. We will consider older residents if they are able to actively take part in the programmes we offer, and in line with Alexandra Homes’ Referral Criteria. Our Homes are not suitable for residents who have significant mobility difficulties or nursing needs.
We believe people with Autistic Spectrum Disorders have many unique and special talents. We firmly believe that with appropriate, high levels of support, guidance, supervision and encouragement, people with Autistic Spectrum Disorders can be integrated into the community to a much greater degree.
Our main aim is to work with and support our residents to become active and valuable members of the community in which they live and to develop a range of skills to enable them to grow in confidence, build their self-esteem, and therefore, giving them greater independence to integrate into the local community. We aim to provide a secure, positive and friendly environment, which is flexible enough to meet the needs of the individual and the group. To achieve our aims we will provide the following:
Alexandra Homes (Bristol) Ltd) is committed to ensuring that job applicants and employees receive equality of opportunity. Our policy is to ensure that no applicant or employee receives less favourable treatment on the grounds of their age, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origins, sex or marital status, disability, or is disadvantaged by conditions or requirements which cannot be shown to be justifiable.
Selection criteria and procedures will be regularly reviewed to ensure that individuals are selected, promoted and treated on the basis of their merits and abilities. All employees will, therefore, be given equal opportunity. Alexandra Homes will continue to review it personnel policies and practices generally and will take appropriate action to make the policy fully effective.
