The Springs Community
The Springs Community

The Springs Community provides high quality residential, short term and 24-hour respite care and support for people with learning disabilities, specialising in autism, Asperger's syndrome and associated conditions. The home offers the benefit of support while encouraging the growth of autonomy and independence for each service user.

Situated in a lovely location right next to the beautiful Kent coast, the Springs Community has four different types of accommodation, offering varying levels of ‘independent living’. The different accommodations allow service users to progressively become more independent to reach their individual goals, with many acquiring the necessary skills to move out in the wider community.

Review of The Springs Community

Calming beautiful location. ASD specialists.
Unique. Space to move, breathe, be yourself. Sea views. Companionship with calm, mostly young, friendly mixed functioning ASD peer group. Structured activities Individual needs are catered for. But for those who like the feeling of being in a group there is the possibility of group excursions to local fetes, shops, Church, pub etc, on foot or using Spring's own minibus. Lovely flat screen TV. Sensory room. Drumkit. Regular CQC inspections mean staff receive latest ASD training and there are constant improvements. Onsite library. Visits by masseur and for craft activities. Annual Christmas and Summer parties give families a chance to participate in the community and get to know each other. Shed to store sports equipment or adapted bicycles to use along long distance tarmac coast path. Shops and doctor's surgery nearby, easy access to special needs dentist. There is nowhere else like this in the south-east.
