  • Day Opportunities : The Community Hub and external services offers a range of activities, experiences and learning as well as a chance for individuals to make new friends and just enjoy some leisure time.
  • Supported Living : Supported Living service provides 24 hour support to groups of tenants in their own homes. You will promote independence by encouragement, learning new skills and trying new experiences we all relish.
