Spotlight Healthcare provides spacious and modern environment and offers the appropriate support for our clients. This is based on developing a sense of family and community within the homes which ensures that there is a calm and relaxed environment for adults with learning disabilities and/or mental health need within this supported living scheme.

Our main aim is to empower our adults by promoting freedom of choice, independence, personal dignity, building confidence, and self-esteem. This is done in a number of different ways and we understand that every client is individual and the care package offered is always tailored to their very specific needs.


Working alongside councils/boroughs and in partnership with social workers and health professionals, we provide a smooth transitional process where we support and encourage adults to maximize their full potential at their own pace. We work together with family and friends of our clients to ensure they are able to find this transition as smooth and familiar as possible.


Most of our accommodation is provided with a large communal lounge, a widescreen TV, a large conservatory, a large kitchen, and a garden. All the homes are based on a philosophy of community and family. This is to ensure that the clients feel safe in this environment and are able to learn key life skills when communicating and living with others. However they also have their own space which provided essential reflection time and also promotes independence.


Following a comprehensive assessment, out team of experienced staff will develop a support Package which is developed to the individual needs of a client. It may be that a client needs more support with educational needs or life skills, all of which can be incorporated and adapted within a care package. This will be developed in conjunction with the client and key members or their team, thus ensuring inclusion right from the very start of their journey with Spotlight. Following this a smooth transitional process is also completed, again with the client very much at the heart of how this will materialise. SHAF Lodge will support and encourage adults to maximize their full potential at their own pace. Our main aim is to promote independence, freedom of choice, dignity, confidence, and self-esteem.


Spotlight Healthcare works alongside its adults, their social workers, community psychiatric nurses, parents/ families and significant others to create care and support plans. It is hugely important and a core value of Spotlight Healthcare that the client is at the heart of every decision and intervention and they are included throughout all areas of their care. It is paramount to us that our clients voice is always heard, listened to and encouraged.
