Welcome to ADS Independent Living Solutions

Who We Are

At ADS we specialise in developing intelligent homes for people with learning disabilities, autistic people and people with mental health, behavioural and physical challenges.

Our mission is to provide ‘a different solution’ and new choices for person-centred homes for people who are more diverse than others.

Our unique Smile Homes® system supported by Innovate UK through its Sustainable Innovation Fund provides high quality new homes where they are needed in which people can live safe, healthy, fulfilling and rewarding lives as independently as possible.

What We Do

As a social enterprise we have a focus on social value always recognizing that what we do is about the people who live in our homes and their families. We are flexible and collaborative, with the commitment to quality and attention to detail you would expect of a trusted partner for clinical commissioning groups, the NHS, Local Authorities, care providers, charities, housing associations and other businesses.

Needs are often complex and always unique so we listen and learn to understand challenges and wants. We combine this with our directors’ experience in healthcare, property development and technology to deliver homes which are: -

  • Purpose-designed to meet the specific needs and wishes of each person
  • Engineered with technology, sensors and devices to safely assist with the activities of daily living, aid independence and health & wellbeing
  • Ethically priced to make them as affordable as we can
  • Off-site constructed to ensure quality, robustness, efficiency and speed
  • Delivered volumetrically to minimise works on site
  • Highly sustainable with the ability to be removed and relocated or refitted and redeployed

We call these Smile Homes® because they are: -

  • Sustainable - low carbon homes with PV’s, green roof and ability to be removed and remanufactured as part of the circular economy
  • Modular - volumetric units fully completed in the factory to order, redefining quality and design from the user perspective as single homes, clusters and apartments
  • Intelligent – with person-centred technology; the right kit for each individual to support specific needs
  • Lifetime – designed with flexibility to meet changing needs with the ability to redeploy homes where they are needed
  • Efficient – optimising costs as part of an ethical and sustainable approach to affordability
