Devon Lodge is a specialist residential service for adults with autism and learning disabilities, who may have behaviours that challenge. We aim to provide a safe, comfortable and effective environment, promoting independence and community integration. Person-centred planning is at the heart of everything we do, based on each person’s specific needs. We understand that consistency and continuity of care is important for the individuals we care for.

Located in Hedge End, Southampton, Devon Lodge has 12 beds; eight in the main house and four in the annex. The service has plenty of rest and recreation areas, both inside and outside in the large garden, providing a safe and homely environment.

As part of our care pathway, Devon Lodge enables each individual to build upon their skills to achieve further independence, self-advocacy and confidence, leading to a better quality of life.

Our activity co-ordinator supports individuals in creating person-centred activity planners and developing daily living skills both inside the home and out in the community. The integrated multi-disciplinary team (MDT) consists of occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, psychology and psychiatry.

Our staff use least restrictive practice approaches and are trained in specialised intervention techniques and sensory integration strategies.
