Doris House

Our Doris House independent living property is a three-bedroom, first and second floor flat with a shared lounge, kitchen and bathroom. Hours of support vary and are dependent on individual needs.

Doris 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 Doris House are also entitled to 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 Doris 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.

Tenants go on an unsupported holiday together
After talking to staff about going away somewhere, Canterbury tenants Gary and Paul booked an unsupported, five-day break to Liverpool together.
