The Woodford Park Project

Accommodation and support services for people with learning disabilities who have complex needs and / or require additional behaviour support.

Specially designed accommodation and support

The Woodford Park Project opened in 2008 as part of a major resettlement scheme for people who were patients at long stay hospitals. Each property has been extensively adapted to provide an appropriate therapeutic environment using assistive technologies to promote safety. All our adaptations are unobtrusive, so each house is still a comfy home.

Our staff are highly trained in supporting people with complex needs and behaviours, including (but not limited to):

  • Ritualistic behaviour
  • Autism
  • LD related conditions

Each team member has received industry-standard training in positive behaviour support, including (but not limited to):

  • RESPECT®
  • Safe physical intervention
  • All mandatory training

Fairways manages The Woodford Project in partnership with a large multidisciplinary network, including the Northern Trust Social Work Department and the Positive Behaviour Support Service. We are committed to continually developing approaches and methods of intervention aimed at reducing frequency, severity and impact of behaviours that concern, empowering our service users to experience independent living in a safe, supportive community.
