Toby Lodge is a 10-bed facility in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, specialising in providing medium- and long-term rehabilitative care for adult males with a forensic background.
Typically, residents come to Toby Lodge after periods of detention under the Mental Health Act, and have been diagnosed, variously, with severe to moderate learning disabilities, Asperger’s syndrome, schizophrenia and bipolar. Residents are often institutionalised from lengthy stays in detention.
“The Home was well led by a registered manager who supported residents to have their views heard and acted upon.”
“Systems were in place to monitor the quality of the service and promote continuous improvement. Monthly residents’ meetings allowed service-users to feedback about the care and support their received”.
“Staff felt valued and spoke positively of the open and honest working environment and the support they received from management, which led to a strong sense of teamwork across the whole team.”
" Jerry couldn’t even make his bed when he first came to Venus. After three months of staff support, his room is one of the tidiest in the Home. He is also one of the first residents down to breakfast in the morning, often helping to prepare the meal. "
