Henshaws College - Care

Our Care team are instrumental in helping you to access your College programme. Whether you are a day or residential student, we will ensure you get personalised support that is right for you.

Who are our Care team?

Our care staff make up the biggest team here at College. We have Care Leads, Deputy Care Leads, Student Support Assistants and Enablers.

Day students

Our students take part in lots of different activities while at College. Our Care team will be there with you throughout to ensure that your learning and personal care needs are met.

As well as understanding and supporting your different needs, our Care team will help you build the skills you need to communicate them to the wider world. We help you make yourself heard and understood so that you can build the skills to become more independent.

Our care staff work closely with our Education, Clinical and Therapy teams to ensure that you get the most out of your time with us. We’d love to work with you to help you achieve your goals.

Residential students

Our Care team offer 24 hour support to our residential students. Living on campus provides more opportunities to develop your independent living and social skills.

You’ll build up confidence in doing things for yourself, like cooking meals, doing laundry, personal care and communicating with others. Our day students can also access respite in our residential buildings. All our buildings are accessible, with many rooms featuring tracking hoists for students who are essential wheelchair users.

We have a range of living spaces available to suit your needs. This includes our three housing blocks – Nidd, Ouse and Ribble as well as self-contained flats.

The staff who work with Joe are AMAZING - he engages well with them all and he listens to them. He is treated as an adult and he is thriving with all the praise he receives. He has grown into a confident, engaged young man and I cannot thank you all enough for your continued help and support with this."
