Our housing services in Thanet, Swale and Canterbury support people with a learning disability to become as independent as possible and live within the community.

Alongside everyday tasks such as cooking, cleaning and ironing, individuals are supported to take part in community activities, ranging from simply going out for a meal to going on holiday.

By supporting individuals both at home and in the community, we aim to increase independence and reduce isolation, improving the overall health and well-being of individuals. We encourage the transition from supported living towards greater independence.

Thursday, 26 October 2017 by
Arkley Road Tenant, Paul Pinder, loves horses and had been so excited about seeing the play War Horse. Having booked tickets in July 2016 for the show at the Marlowe Theatre in Canterbury, the suspense continued... Over a year later and the wait was finally over!
