History and service development

Our first service was established in 1994 in direct response to the unmet needs of local commissioners who were looking for flexible long-term care, support and housing solutions for people with learning disabilities in Nottinghamshire.

As we expanded our supported living services for people with learning disabilities we also started to develop specialisms in other areas, enabling us to support people with a wide variety of needs including autistic spectrum conditions, mental health support needs and acquired brain injury.

In 2013 and 2014 a number of high-quality care and support organisations joined the Group including Housing and Support Solutions in Lincolnshire, Essential Futures in Warwickshire and Supported Homes in both Warwickshire and the West Midlands. These businesses have further increased our breadth of services, including nurse-led care in people’s homes, and increased our geographical footprint.

We now also provide small registered care services across the country. Again, responding to commissioner and individual needs, we have developed services to support people whose challenging behaviours have meant that previously they hadn’t been considered able to live in the community – but Eden’s specialist services have enabled this harder to reach service user group to live more fulfilled and meaningful lives in a community setting.

Eden continues to grow, developing and expanding our services across England. Our care pathway also continues to develop, supporting people under the Mental Health Act in single person apartments as well as providing registered care services such as single person Registered Care Homes.

We look forward to continued innovation and meeting the varied needs of our service users.

I’m very happy, they look after me and I can do what I want and they keep me safe
