Our philosophy

King Street philosophy imageThe highly experienced staff at King Street, Thorne, pride themselves on offering a highly professional 52-week-a-year residential provision for younger adults and seek to provide a firm foundation for ongoing, positive progress in their lives.

The principal aim is for everybody at King Street to be enabled to develop greater independence through their person-centred plans in an environment that offers warmth, security, consistency and understanding. A purposeful and calm atmosphere is encouraged through the professional approach adopted by all staff. Trust and a positive rapport between the people we support and staff underpin the ethos within the service.

Equality and diversity: We are committed to enabling people to express their individuality through supporting them in relation to their culture, belief, race, disability, gender or sexual orientation. We seek to ensure we do not discriminate against anybody who lives or works in, or otherwise accesses our services, in any respect.

Advocacy: People living at King Street have access to independent advocacy services commissioned by Hesley Group.

Planning now, for the future
We have a focus on helping prepare people for their lives beyond King Street, by providing a full range of positive opportunities for learning and development, appropriate to the needs and wishes of each person. We place a strong emphasis on getting transition planning right with and for each person.

We take a positive approach to risk management, based on a full understanding of the needs of each person. We work consultatively with the person themselves and all other key parties in planning and developing individualised care and support. We monitor and regularly review all assessments, progress and outcomes.

A strong emphasis is placed on meaningful activity away from King Street, as well as within the service itself. There are facilities within the service for people to develop meaningful skills, as well as initiatives for people to access employment, further education and other community facilities and services. 

Positive partnership working, clear and positive communication and respectful and collaborative relationships are seen as vital to creating and continually evolving methods of support, with families and other key personal and professional parties. This helps us best facilitate and develop the care and support provided for each person, as they move into, through and on from King Street.
