Life-changing support for adults with learning disabilities, autism and mild physical disabilities.
Type of property
Matchwood Close is a collection of three detached houses where people are supported to live independently.
Each property has four-bedrooms, a kitchen, dining room, lounge area and three bathrooms - one with a toilet and sink, one wet room-style en-suite, and one shared bathroom with a bath and/or shower. One house also has a separate designated quiet lounge. There is an accessible garden at each house for people to spend time relaxing outside when the weather is good.
Valued in your community
Matchwood Close is in Garston - a short walk from New Mersey Shopping Park which has high-street shops and a Cineworld Cinema. The local area has many cafes, pubs, restaurants, and shops.
For people who like to stay active, Lifestyles Garston Leisure Centre provides year-round access to a gym and swimming pool.
Liverpool is easily accessible from the property. Here, people can enjoy numerous museums and art galleries, Liverpool ONE Shopping Centre, the Liverpool Empire, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, and Imagine That Science and Discovery Centre. And we’re spoilt for choice for beautiful walks - the docks, Toxteth Park, Wavertree Botanic Gardens and Sefton Park are just a small selection.
Liverpool is also home to The Reader Organisation - a charity specialising in shared reading to improve mental wellbeing. Located in Calderstones Park, people can visit the Reader Cafe or the Storybarn to join shared reading sessions, where stories are read aloud and then discussed.
Living at this service
At Matchwood Close, we support people with varying needs. Of the three services in the street, one is for men only and the other two are for women.
People enjoy volunteering, gaming, watching television, listening to music, walking, cooking, swimming, football, watching wrestling, socialising, spending time with family, and being in the community.
At Matchwood Close, people choose how they spend their time. Meetings are held every three months to decide what activities people would like to do - day trips to the coast, Blackpool and North Wales are favourites.
“The houses at Matchwood Close are very modern, tastefully decorated, and have a really homely feel. The properties are on a nice, quiet residential street within a good community and close to all amenities. The people we support here are very happy, friendly and welcoming.” Manager, Matchwood Close
