Dolphin Homes currently has vacancies at Camberley Cottage in Camberley; Beach View in Middleton-on-Sea, West Sussex and Park View in Alverstoke, near Gosport in Hampshire.

We are also taking referrals for our Prader Willi service which is due to open in Netley Abbey, Southampton in September 2017.


Process for Referrals

Each person referred to Dolphin Homes is treated as an individual whose needs, abilities and personality are assessed in detail in order to ascertain their suitability for placement within one of our homes. Referrals can be made by a Social Worker/Care Manager or directly from parents themselves.  However, before assessment can take place the Care Manager acting on behalf of the service user must be consulted.

In addition to the assessment carried out by Dolphin Homes, the referral process also includes inviting family, friends and Care Managers to visit any suitable homes to see for themselves the environment and services available. Where it is not possible or appropriate for the service user to visit in person we recommend a visit by someone who knows the individual well and can advocate on their behalf.

A transition plan can then be put in place for the service user and it is specifically tailored to their individual needs and provides as much support as is possible to aid the person in the move to their new home.
