Life-changing support for adults with learning disabilities.
Type of property
The bungalow at Barnes Road is a happy environment where people can benefit from the perfect mix of independent and communal living.
The property has four bedrooms and one shared bathroom. Three of the bedrooms have en-suite toilets. It has a large kitchen, a laundry room, a spacious shared living room with a dining table and a communal garden. There is level access into the property, and out to the garden, where the people we support can spend time outside.
Valued in your community
At Barnes Road, we place people’s personal interests, needs and aspirations at the heart of absolutely everything we do. We are located close to Stafford, with its range of vibrant shops, cafes and restaurants.

We have year-round access to local leisure facilities such as swimming at Stafford Leisure Centre, or reading at Rising Brook library.
People also enjoy walks in the local area, lunching together at Nando's and Wetherspoons, and trips to the coast.
Living at this service
At Barnes Road, people are aged between 20 and 40. The three other residents in the bungalow have learning disabilities. They enjoy a peaceful lifestyle and will welcome an individual with a similar outlook.
The two women we support here are in their early 30s. Their interests range from gardening, keeping fit and cooking, to watching soaps, listening to music and arts and crafts. The other is a man in his mid-forties. He is a quiet person who has a passion for Disney.
People enjoy days out, taking part in a local version of the Special Olympics, going to parties and watching musicals. They are an independent group who like spending time in the community.
“At Barnes Road, we provide a very calm, relaxed and happy service. The bungalow is often filled with laughter. If I had an adult child with learning disabilities, I would be very happy knowing they lived here.” Manager, Barnes Road
