What we Do

Norwood provides 17 residential care homes for adults with a primary need of learning disability. We also support other conditions such as autism, complex health needs, mental health, physical disabilities and sensory impairments as secondary needs.

Our accommodations are a home from home with a capacity of between five and eight residents per home.

These residential homes are located in North London and Berkshire. We are able to offer en-suite facilities, community spaces and, most importantly of all, caring and supportive staff 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Frequently Asked Questions
How can we make a referral?

Anybody can make an enquiry with regard to individuals to our residential places, however we would normally expect a full referral to be made via a professional within a Council (social worker, case worker, brokerage or discharge team) or from a Health Service (General Practitioner, Consultant, Doctor, social worker for the Trust, Bed Management Team, Discharge Team etc.)

The person might be also referred by other charities or by family members, however the cost for residential placement is usually funded by a professional body.

How much does a Residential Placement cost?

Costs are entirely dependent upon the individual’s needs. Guideline costs can be provided, however please contact us with as much information as possible so we can try and provide an estimate.

Norwood would need to carry out an assessment on the individual to ascertain if we would be able to support them and to what level.

What are the homes like?

Norwood prides itself on providing small, friendly and homely environments – a number being purpose built.

We also cater for a small number of people with mobility issues or other conditions but in all cases, we would ensure that the person we are supporting is placed appropriately and supported with care throughout.

How long does this process take?

At Norwood, we aim to take the shortest amount of time possible, but this is dependent on individual circumstances. In order to speed the process up, we need as much information as possible on the person, as well arranging and carrying out assessments, obtaining funding approval and finally facilitating a planned move-in date.
