Poppy Lodge

Poppy Lodge is a specialist registered Children home that provides a service to support up to six children and young people, male and female, who present with learning disabilities and autism and associated behaviours. Poppy Lodge is in Telford and is a purpose built fully accessible six bedroomed bungalow with all bedrooms having en-suites.

The home benefits from a skilled, well trained and committed staff team who offer various methods to enable all children to be able to communicate effectively using a total communication approach for none verbal children to allow the right combination based on the individual’s needs. The home can source child and need specific training to ensure each child living at Poppy Lodge has all their individual needs met.
