Our services offers 24/7 specialist supported living care which is designed to provide just the right level of support; we encourage individuals to develop the skills that they need to live as independently as possible. We offer 1:1 and 2;1 staffing where required.

Within the homes we continually promote the development of social skills, independent living and personal responsibility. We find that the people who are supported by supported living North Yorkshire are very proud of their homes as they are directly involved in creating it. Individuals get involved in daily duties such as cooking, doing laundry and cleaning, depending upon their ability.

Many enjoy the social occasions arranged with in the community such as: eating out, going shopping, going to music concerts, football or rugby matches, trips to theme parks, visits to the local Turkish spa baths and much, much more.

Approximately a five minute walk away there are local shops in the town centre and large supermarket. Harrogate has a main college just outside of town and there are smaller learning centres in and around the local area.
