Our service (one vacancy)

This is a lively residential home for adults with a range of complex needs. We specialise in supporting and assisting people with sight loss.

Dennis (pictured above and below) lives at The Willows and his brother and sister-in-law are delighted:

The Willows is the best place Dennis has ever lived at. He is very happy here, and that makes us happy too.

We want to excel as a specialist provider of quality care and support, ensuring the people we support are at the heart of everything we do.

Our aim is to enable them to make choices and express their individuality. Personalisation is not a tick box exercise for us but is fundamental to how we deliver our mission every single day of the year.

Our specialist support team work closely with the people we support, providing rehabilitation to people with sight loss to help them maintain and develop skills, and be more independent. We have speech and language therapists who support people with communication difficulties and the team also provides assistive technology and accessible information.
