We have 3 residential houses at College and all are furnished with the latest equipment to enable students to take an increasing amount of responsibility for their own health and hygiene and to become as independent as possible. Everyone in our care is encouraged to develop into mature individuals who value their independence and have the freedom to make responsible choices
Practical and emotional support
We understand that for many students, coming to a College such as Treloar's will be the first time living away from home and meeting their emotional needs is as important as meeting their physical requirements.
Each residential house has its own care manager and dedicated care co-ordinators who are responsible for the day-to-day welfare of students. We employ over 150 care staff, including waking night staff. They are on hand to provide any practical or emotional support a student may need.
Due to the particular nature of a student's disability, he or she may been a need for assistance with intimate physical care. Our training is of the highest standard and the utmost pains and taken to respect students' dignity, privacy and self-esteem at all times. This ethos of dignity and respect is inspected by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) who have rated us as overall 'Outstanding'.

Learning about living on one's own and the skills they'll need when they leave College and home is an important goal for many students. Cooking, cleaning, shopping, budgeting, directing and negotiating care support and time management are all essential skills, whether students do them for themselves or direct others to do them. Students find being able to live in one of our independence flats an invaluable experience in developing these skills.
