Welcome to 42 Fairkytes Avenue

This home specialises in caring for people with an Autistic Condition but with other complex needs as well. We have a sensory room and have developed various individually tailored programmes to meet the sensory needs of our Service Users. We have an experienced highly capable team who promote individual choice and are commited to maintaining the dignity agenda.

We work with several local agencies as part of our service users’ care plans and take full advantage of all the amenities that Hornchurch has to offer; Fairkytes Arts Centre, Langton Park and Fielders Sports Ground are all less than a ten-minute walk away. Lots of our service users take part in college courses geared towards their needs so that they can improve their skills and knowledge.

Above all else, our drive is to promote independence. We encourage everyone to learn all the necessary life skills, with our staff team on hand to help service users achieve their full potential.

All service users are encouraged to voice their opinions and ideas on the day-to-day running of 42 Fairkytes Avenue. Engaging and empowering service users to help shape and improve our services are, after all, the key to our on-going success.
