4, 5, 7 The Sycamores, South Normanton, Derbyshire, DE55 3BJ

4, 5, 7 The Sycamores is a residential service in Normanton, Derbyshire. This homely service supports six men with learning disabilities, who may also have a secondary diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder.

The service is made up of three, two bed bungalows with a shared spacious garden and outdoor seating. Each bungalow has its own open plan lounge and kitchen where individuals are supported to develop their daily living skills. In addition, each bungalow has two en-suite bedrooms and the men we support are encouraged to personalise their own space.

We empower each individual to function to a higher therapeutic level with careful consideration of staffing interventions and clinical input. This gives our residents the freedom and independence to flourish and develop their skills.

Each resident receives an individualised care and support plan which is tailored to their own needs. This helps enable them to achieve successful community living and break a cycle of placement breakdown.
