Raina has complex needs and lives at home with her mum, brother and sister. Having attended Lancaster school, alternative day provision needed to be found as she reached adulthood. This is often a difficult time for families, and it was difficult for Raina as she adjusted to new faces, places and routines.
Raina started going to Viking in September 2018. Immediately, the team noticed some concerning behaviour patterns. Her behaviour escalated over the next few months, so she began attending Viking House full-time and being supported on a 1:1 basis.
The support provided at Viking was consistent and staff successfully met her complex needs. Raina is now very settled at Viking House. Her mum says; “I have never seen Raina so happy when she is getting ready in the morning.” Her challenging behaviours are reducing and Raina has her smile back.
