Get To Know Us
In 1986 the Society was asked to set up home for three people who needed to move from Ida Darwin hospital in Cambridge into the community. This was to be a home for life, a place that was theirs where they could make a home of their own. With the support of our fabulous and committed staff – plus a charity committee who believed in what we were doing – our first support tenancy was created. We still support those people and have gone on to provide other supported tenancies in Huntingdon and St Ives.
How we help
As well as providing supported tenancies in the community we also help those with learning disabilities improve their life skills, make and maintain social networks and access leisure and work opportunities. We always make sure that the support our service users receive is delivered in the way they want, empowering them to have control over their own lives. Support is offered from just one hour per day to 24 hours-a-day and all our staff teams have specialist learning disability training, including Makaton, Autism awareness, communication skills and advocacy, so we can give the best support possible.
