Our service

Applewood is a small residential home for adults with learning disabilities, other disabilities, and autism, many of whom have sight loss. 

I like the garden. It makes me feel happy,

Jordan, who lives at Applewood


“The support and help given to my relative at Applewood is outstanding and has given him more independence than we ever thought possible. We fought hard for his place there and are continually surprised by his achievements. Well done and thanks to all at Applewood.” – A family member


Our facilities and accommodation

There are four bedrooms, two with en-suite facilities, and a ground floor self-contained garden flat.

Applewood also has a large shared lounge, kitchen and conservatory, and an accessible garden.

Access to SeeAbility's nearby activity and resource centre, the Bradbury Centre, can be arranged for each person, together with the potential to link up with trained volunteers to enhance interaction and community involvement.


Specialist support services

We don’t underestimate people. We encourage people with disabilities to challenge what they expect from life, from themselves and from wider society.

SeeAbility’s approach is responsive and truly person focused, enabling ambitious progress toward positive outcomes. The people we support can live more independently as active participants in our communities, and make more choices about what they want from life every day.

Our approach gets exceptional results.

SeeAbility has the one of the country’s most comprehensive in-house team of specialists, ensuring our approach is person-centred and expert-led, based on positive behaviour support. The team includes consultant behaviour analysts, speech and language therapists, physiotherapists, optometrists, and vision rehabilitation workers.

While our Specialist Support Team provides personalised and proactive interventions, our skilled support workers are trained to apply this expertise in everyday contexts. 


Expert help with transition planning

It’s wise to think ahead. Have you started thinking about your child’s future?

SeeAbility’s expert teams offer friendly information and advice to help you understand the options for the next stages of life.

We will be happy to show you some of our services available and talk you through what’s needed to ensure exciting and positive outcomes in the next stage of your child’s adult life.

Give us a call.
