Overview of the service

Maple Leaf Lodge is a specialist residential home for up to 12 adults with learning disabilities who may also have a dual diagnosis (including mental health problems or Autistic Spectrum Disorders) and additional complex needs.

The service offered by Maple Leaf Lodge has two distinct components – a high quality residential care service offered in the home's main building and a separate specialist forensic unit.

Maple Leaf Lodge's forensic unit, providing 24-hour care and support for up to 2 adults, has been specifically designed to meet the needs and aspirations of individuals who have forensic histories, or who are considered at serious risk of offending or re-offending.

We are able to accommodate both short-term and longer-term placements.
