Supported Living

St Joseph’s has a house in Cranleigh for 6 tenants with Autism and moderate to severe learning disabilities.

Opened in July 2012 Springvale is registered with the Care Quality Commission and provides maximum support for adults to maximise and achieve their potential in the community and participating in community life.

The local parish council is very supportive and is actively involved in supporting tenants with aspects of work within the Cranleigh community.

Autism Accreditation

We are working with the National Autism Society (NAS) to have our autism practise professionally accredited. We are going to be assessed to make sure our practise meets their standards.

As part of this, we are inviting residents and their families to take part in a survey being carried out by the NAS. The links are as follows:

People with Autism

This is intended for any person with Autism who attends our Supported Living provision. It can be completed by the young person, or with support. Where possible, the person providing support to complete the questionnaire should be independent from the provision being assessed.

Families of People with Autism

This is intended for the family member or carer who represents the interests of the autistic person to complete.

Please note the survey closes on the 22nd April 2021.
