The Rookery Hove is a transitional service for young adults, typically aged between 18 and 40 who have Asperger's Syndrome or are on the autistic spectrum or have similar leaning difficulties. The services we provide promote independence and life skills, whilst getting our residents ready for moving on from Rookery Hove into supported living. Our team’s aim is to empower our service users to take control of their lives and where possible, work towards a level of independence which fits with their confidence and aspirations. The skills we help to develop using step-by-step programmes include budgeting, cooking, food shopping and personal hygiene.
