Specialist residential care and support for young people

Athena Housing and Support Limited is a specialist residential care service designed to support young people, aged between sixteen and twenty-five who have a range of complex needs requiring support, guidance and assistance on a wide range of subjects during the transition process into independent living.

We are a national resource, currently based in Bedfordshire and are also collaborating with several local authorities to develop resources in order that young people do not have to move out of their domiciliary region.

Athena provides an outstanding quality of mentoring and guidance; this is instrumental in helping our young people to modify and change any negative behaviour, take learning seriously, and make good progress. The individually tailored package is outstanding, being broad and personalised exceptionally to meet the highly specific needs of each individual.

Athena is professional and committed to an open and honest exchange of information in order to enable accurate assessment of risk and effective planning for best outcomes for young people. We are open, caring and respectful and we welcome enquiries and confidential discussions. Athena will make an individual transition plan and support plan, beginning the transition and outreach work with the young person from the current residence if possible, and if appropriate, providing them with a key worker that will remain consistent for them throughout their placement.

Athena support team will engage in early discussion and facilitate meetings and visits for young people, their families and significant others, social worker and other relevant professionals. We believe in full participation and involvement of young people in the planning process and are flexible and creative in engaging their interests.

We provide a range of services, all of which are tailored during an initial assessment to ensure the needs of each young person placed with us.
