Living at this service
We are ready to welcome a confident and vocal person who enjoys a busy atmosphere with lots of noise.
The women we support here are aged between 35 and 55 years old, who live with learning disabilities. All of the people we support here are very vocal and have strong personalities.
One woman likes spending time with her boyfriend, going to concerts and the cinema, and being in the community. The second woman enjoys shopping, cleaning, chatting and playing dominoes. The third woman here likes anything to do with desserts - especially cake, and going on holiday.

People’s hobbies including gaming, listening to music, watching tribute bands, karaoke, watching television, walking, cooking and bingo.
“The Barn is a spacious house that has enough room for everyone to find a quiet corner by themselves. The atmosphere is very social in this busy household - the environment is best described as loud and happy. We are close to the town centre and have easy access to everything, or you can go for walks near the house. ” Manager, The Barn
