A residential care home set in rural East Sussex
Carricks Brook provides specialist support for adults with Autism, Learning Disabilities and challenging needs.
Set in a peaceful rural location on the edge of the village of Dallington, Carricks Brook is home to 12 residents with Autism and behaviours of concern, supported by a high ratio of specialist trained support staff.
Opened in August 2009 Carricks Brook has 12 en-suite bedrooms, with bright, open communal areas that allow staff to balance our residents changing needs. The rural setting of the home offers a retreat for those who benefit from a private & peaceful environment.
The service is staffed by a high ratio of support staff specifically trained to enable residents who present with challenging behaviour to reach their full potential using varied techniques. Tailored to the individual, these may include: Positive Behaviour Analysis, TEACCH, Picture Exchange Communication System, Social Stories & S.T.O.P & Relax techniques.
We employ our own in-house trainer in N.A.P.P.I. techniques (Non-Abusive, Psychological and Physical Intervention), which enables us to create & implement highly individual & effective Positive Behaviour Support plans.
Our Ethos & Values
At Carricks Brook the resident is at the centre of everything, through understanding their individual needs, preferences, goals and dreams, the residents are supported to live fulfilling and purposeful lives. Carricks Brook is set in a lovely house surrounded by beautiful forests which the residents regularly access for walks. The home has plenty of cars so it’s easy to access the wider community with the support of well trained and knowledgeable staff.
Working with people with Autism and challenging behaviours is a great career choice. There is a high ratio of residents to staff so you will always be well supported.

We are always interested in talking to candidates from a range of different backgrounds, experience is helpful but not essential for many roles. We encourage our team to continue to improve their skills throughout their careers, providing ongoing training and access to Diploma qualifications in Health and Social Care.
