Backler House

Backler House is an independent living property comprised of six self-contained flats: three two-bedroom and three one-bedroom.

Backler House is situated in Cliftonville, which is within easy walking distance of Margate town centre, where tenants can visit places such as Dreamland, Turner Contemporary and the Old Town. In Cliftonville, tenants have access to amenities such as pharmacies, supermarkets and banks. There are also a number of transport links, allowing them to visit elsewhere in East Kent.

Tenants at Backler House also receive support from our Supporting People Enablement Team (SPET), allowing them to achieve the things they want out of life, whether this is maintaining contact with friends and family, finding a job, or speaking up about the things that are important to them.

Our Margate resource centre is in close proximity to Backler House, providing tenants with the opportunity to develop their life skills, take part in therapeutic activities and access services within the community.

For more information, contact us via email, or phone 01843-224482.

Our SPET team have been supporting the co-founder of Learning Disability England, Gary Boulet, to achieve the organisation's goal of making people's voices louder.
Having been on a number of day-trips in and around Kent and Sussex, tenant, Joyce, and volunteer, Linda, decided to go on a short break to Blackpool.
After talking to staff about going away somewhere, Canterbury tenants Gary and Paul booked an unsupported, five-day break to Liverpool together.
Our SPET team was recently invited to Canterbury Christchurch University to discuss their work with the School of Nursing to help educate healthcare students about learning disability.
