Type of property
At Centaur Court apartments, people come together as a community. Living in this shared building means people benefit from a vibrant network of staff and friends, as well as enjoying independence in their own apartment.
The building has thirteen one-bedroom apartments, each with an open-plan kitchen and living room, and a bathroom with a bath. Centaur Court also has an accessible garden with BBQ for people to use when the weather is good.

Living at this service
Centaur Court is ready to welcome someone new. People living here enjoy walking, shopping, listening to music, watching television, volunteering, gaming, gardening, socialising, swimming, watching football, and being in the community.
At Centaur Court, people choose how they spend their time. We hold bi-monthly meetings to discuss what activities people would like to do. Day trips to Blackpool, Leeds, Manchester, Blackburn, and local museums are favourites. We’ve even been on canal trips as a group.
“At Centaur Court, the apartments all have lovely views of the railway and Pendle Hill. The area is very quiet but is still close to all amenities. The staff are all long standing and have created a fun and friendly atmosphere for the people we support.” Manager, Centaur Court
