New supported living service and jobs creation coming to Pudsey


  • Eden Futures launches recruitment drive to assist people in supported living

Eden Futures is actively recruiting for 48 staff members to assist people set to live in new accommodation in Leeds. The supported living service in Pudsey will open Spring 2022 and contain twelve apartments and eight specialist bungalows within a purpose-built development.

Eden Futures works with adults who are autistic, have learning disabilities, enduring mental ill health and high support needs to support them in their everyday life. It’s provided flexible long-term care and support for people for over 25 years across northern England and the Midlands. This involves on-site support like in Pudsey where people live independently but support workers are available 24 hours a day.

Developer Pudsey SSL Limited is building the accommodation for Blue Square Residential and the commissioning teams of NHS Leeds Clinical Commissioning Group and Leeds City Council.

Dave Whittock, director of service development, says: “Each person we support for the local commissioning team has their own tenancy agreement and front door, regardless of how complex their behavioural needs are.

“With a business commitment to open new services to support people in their homes, Eden Futures’ immediate plans include two further schemes in Hull, and ones in Leeds, Nuneaton, Newark, Stoke and Birmingham. We need to fill 250 full time job posts for professional, skilled workers over the next few years. We’re undertaking a significant recruitment drive to provide specialist assistance for people in supported living.”

Eden Futures helps people who live in their own accommodation by providing the care and support packages they need. It currently assists 650 people across 152 sites.

If you know someone who might benefit from a supported living place in Pudsey, you can email referrals@nulledenfutures.org.

Eden Futures is providing care and support for new accommodation in the centre of Derby, which recently opened its doors.

Built by Minster Developments for Inclusion Housing Association and the commissioning team of Derby City Council, Eden Futures has taken on 25 employees to support the people living there.

The first person moved in this week to the housing which includes twelve self-contained apartments and three new build specialist bungalows.

Dave Whittock, director of service development, says: “Each person we support has their own tenancy agreement and front door, regardless of how complex their behavioural needs are.  Since 1994 we’ve helped thousands of people to live in their community by providing the care and support packages they need.  We’ve facilitated 200 new placements in the last five years alone and currently assist 650 people across 170 sites.

“We can only achieve this by working with developers, commissioners, landlords and health professionals in partnership. Together we’re able to work towards having the right sustainable support for people living in their own accommodation.”

Eden Futures service recognised for good autism practice


Eden Futures’ service, Cherry Trees in Nottinghamshire, has been awarded Autism Accreditation by the National Autistic Society, the UK’s leading charity for autistic people and their families.

Autism Accreditation is an autism-specific quality assurance programme. It was set up by the National Autistic Society in 1992 to improve the support available to autistic people in organisations throughout the UK and across the world, including local authorities, NHS trusts, education authorities, schools, colleges and more. To gain Accreditation, organisations must meet a standard of excellence and follow a framework for continuous self-examination and development.

Commenting Lorna Durrant, Head of Specialist Strategies and Outcomes, explains: “This accreditation is fantastic news and is testament to the incredible work the team do supporting autistic people. They clearly demonstrate the vision and values of our business – Brave, Positive, Responsive, Well-led and Caring and Compassionate.

“The service was visited by an accreditation advisor and hosted by one of our autistic Experts by Experience who lives in the service. The advisor found the autistic people we support ‘presented as feeling safe and calm, with proactive and preventative strategies in place to avoid anxiety, confusion, or distress’ and that we demonstrated the ability to help autistic people to ‘understand and regulate their emotions’. The advisor reported it was ‘clear to see that there was an obvious rapport between staff and autistic people with a genuine sense of mutual respect and care.’

“The advisor went on to say; ‘Cherry Trees has a strong staff team who demonstrate an in-depth understanding of the residents they support and show a clear understanding of why they are using specific strategies to support individuals.’ The ‘passion and vision’ of the service manager was highlighted as promoting a ‘‘can do’ attitude and encouraging positive risks to be taken’.

“The Eden Futures Expert by Experience programme was also applauded by the advisor as offering ‘autistic people genuine training and employment opportunities, ensuring that the voices of those with lived experiences are listened to and valued’.”

There are around 700,000 autistic people in the UK. Because it’s a spectrum, every autistic person is different and will have their own strengths and face varying challenges. Some autistic children and adults need 24-hour care and support and won’t be able to work.

Stephen Dedridge, Head of Autism Accreditation (South) at the National Autistic Society said: “Eden Futures’ Cherry Trees service should be very proud of its achievement.  We launched our Autism Accreditation programme over 25 years ago and set extremely high standards, which Cherry Trees has worked hard to meet. We hope other organisations and services will follow their lead and work with us to improve the way they support autistic people.”

New supported living services and jobs coming to Chesterfield


Eden Futures’ new supported living service in the Brampton area of Chesterfield is taking shape, with the company planning to welcome users next Spring.  As a result, the search is on for 32 new support workers and staff to work there.

Construction is on track. Opening late March 2021, Eden Futures will provide six self-contained apartments and six new build specialist bungalows with built-in assistive technology.

Working with developers The SSL Partnership, social landlord Inclusion Housing and the commissioning team of Derbyshire County Council to provide this new service, it’s 8.5 miles away from Eden Futures’ existing services in the county.

Dave Whittock, director of service development, says: “Despite the challenges of the pandemic we’re moving forward with our plans to meet the shortage of specialist supported living services which are much needed in communities. We welcome applications for the posts to support the service which are advertised on our website.

“We’ve already helped more than 650 people across 150 sites to live in their own home in the community, and we work alongside them and their relatives to achieve this in collaboration with developers, commissioners, landlords and health professionals.  We have a number of schemes under construction across the country including Chesterfield and in Hull, Derby and Newark, creating more than 200 full time jobs in total.”
