Within the function of Avalon Enterprise we cannot accommodate adults with profound challenging behavior, serious criminal behavior or those experiencing serious mental health issues. Placement is reliant upon whether Avalon Enterprise can be foreseen to meet and be responsive to the needs of the referred adult and the objective criteria of Avalon Enterprise and the Care Manager.
Referrals are made to Avalon Enterprise through Social Services departments, Local Authority Housing Officers, the Supporting People Team and by private enquiry. Initial contact is made via the telephone or letter.
Referral Application forms have to be completed. These are available from Avalon Enterprise head office, LAC Housing Office, Social Services and via our website (www.avalon-enterprise.co.uk)
All referring bodies must provide Avalon Enterprise with a Risk Assessment and a Care Plan for the Service User prior to a placement being offered.
Private clients will be advised to contact Social Services for assessment before being considered for our services.
Service Users must be able access Housing Benefit in order to receive support from the Supporting People Team.
