The Beach Hut Facilities

The Beach Hut has 3 bedrooms which are suitable for young people with complex care needs from the age of 18. The home provides single occupancy rooms allowing for mixed gender and ages giving a family feel to the home. The home is maintained to a high standard and is bright and cheery. There is also a large secluded, pleasant garden.

All bedrooms have fully adjustable electric profiling beds with overhead tracking for hoist purposes.

There is a large wet room. The Beach Hut has two toilets so that hygiene requirements can be met in a safe, private and dignified manner. Handling and equipment advice has been sought from an Occupational Therapist.

We have Health and Safety and 'in house' Fire Safety Policies in place and our staff receive training in these issues.

We are within short distance to the seafront at Clacton-on-Sea which is wheelchair accessible, we can also access sensory room facilities and swimming for children young people with disabilities all on a local basis. The home is in easy reach of several New Model Special Schools and has good links with the two that are closest in proximity.

Young people are supported to have work experience and to fulfil their maximum potential. 

All young people using our service will be able to access our purpose designed and equipped sensory garden at Driftwood Lodge, which will prove to be a great addition to our service.
