The Orchard Trust currently have two Supported Living homes situated in the centre of Lydney which is a vibrant, busy town with excellent transport links, shops and cafes, a hospital, library and so much more.
Supported living seeks to provide adults with disabilities with choice, control, rights and responsibilities to live their lives the way they want to.
Through our supported living service we offer people the opportunity to live independently, to pursue safe and healthy lifestyles whilst empowering them to develop their personal skills, integrate in the local community and to keep in touch with family and friends. We can provide support to plan and provide leisure, social activities, education and work experience opportunities of their choice.
We have a dedicated, flexible and skilled staff team that can offer up to 24 hour support if required. This enables the Trust to uphold the principles of supported living of being able to choose friends and relationships, choose how to be healthy and safe, choose how to take part in the community and to make life choices.
Kimberley Drive and Morelands in Lydney, are well established homes with five bedrooms and generous shared facilities . True to the spirit of Supported Living, the tenants at each house have control of their lives and share in all the decision making for the home on a daily basis. Tenants in both houses have individual tenancy agreements with their landlord and benefit from high quality, flexible support from our specialist team of Supported Living staff.
