Holdingham House is a purpose-built high-intensity specialist home, designed to better support the needs of people who have profound and severe needs and risks related to behaviours that may challenge; including those that have previously experienced difficulties with finding suitable long-term placements, or a breakdown of placements with other providers who were unable to meet their complex needs. These often relate to their learning disability, autism spectrum disorder, personality disorder, self-injury and aggression.

We support the individual to gain confidence and feel safe with the people who are working with them. We create a package of support that is based on a community inclusive outlook in their local area and work with the support networks of the individual to maintain the crucial links that promote positive wellbeing and control for the individual.
