“Heath Farm is a specialised centre for people with autism and learning disabilities. It is in a rural setting with green, open spaces which are quiet and calm. Each property has its own vehicle which helps people to access the community whenever they like. There is a behaviour team onsite, headed by a psychologist, that meets with residents every week. All of the managers have worked here for over twenty years, giving them excellent experience in helping the people we support to gain the best life and independence possible. There is a real community feel across all the properties, making it a safe and happy place to live.” Manager, Heath Farm
