About the service

Woodview (Active Prospects) is a care home for up to nine people with learning disabilities. It is arranged on one floor with individual bedrooms and shared living and dining areas.

The service has been developed and designed in line with the principles and values that underpin Registering the Right Support (RRS) and other best practice guidance. While the service was slightly larger than RRS suggests, supporting nine people, the arrangement of the home, and the way people were supported aligned with the values that underpin RRS. This ensures that people who use the service can live as full a life as possible and achieve the best possible outcomes. The principles reflect the need for people with learning disabilities and/or autism to live meaningful lives that include control, choice, and independence. People using the service receive planned and co-ordinated person-centred support that is appropriate and inclusive for them.
