Springfield House Life Development Centre
A family led service - better outcomes
Springfield House is a large house in Hove, East Sussex. It is a supported living house for 5 adults all with Learning Disabilities. It is owned by a local social landlord and designed for the people that live there. In early 2019, it undertook a piece of work to adapt it to excel at meeting peoples needs. This was funded by JMS - https://www.supportedlivingfunding.co.uk/.
Springfield House Life Development Centre is a different supported living service and aims for the best life outcomes. Springfield House Life Development Centre is envisaged as a both a home and a centre devoted to developing the skills of young adults with an intellectual learning disability and complex needs with some behaviours that challenge.
Springfield House is a family-driven enterprise, based on an innovative supported living model. Its ambition is for those with a learning disability to achieve full, meaningful lives using techniques and approaches drawn from Positive Behaviour Support (PBS), led by a local social enterprise provider.

The project is with a not-for-profit landlord, led by families to be a home for life. Sharing dreams and building positive lives.
