‘To provide opportunities for creative living through activity that embodies the ethos of the Community and meet the needs of the residents’
The community’s visions and values were embedded in every aspect of the home. People were treated as equals and were encouraged to take control of their lives as far as possible. Staff competence and behaviours were continuously monitored by management to ensure they
were displaying the values of the community and the high level of competence expected.
The Community prides itself on providing a diverse range of activities often tailored to meet the specific needs and interests of individuals.
We have our own Outdoor Activities and Art departments, providing a wide ranging programme including; archery, canoeing, caving, cycling, horse riding, walking, orienteering, rock climbing, surfing and abseiling. These may be organised locally or involve expeditions away. There are also many activities of an art and cultural nature involving music, drama, arts and crafts.
If nothing takes your fancy, we are always up for suggestions.
All activities are planned and supervised by fully qualified staff, in accordance with national governing body safety requirements. Where particular skills are not available within the Community, a reputable external provider is brought in to supervise and run the activity.
Further to our activities program Individuals are encouraged to make full use of the educational, cultural, sporting and social facilities available in the wider community.
If you wish to make an arrangement to attend religious services, of whatever denomination or faith, we are here to support you in that choice.
The Community will support you in maintaining friendships and family relationships, if you wish to. Visits are welcomed at your home or arrangements can be made to support trips to family and friends.
