Old Leigh House supports men living with a learning disability and complex needs. The team can also support those who have mental and physical health needs, as well as behaviours that may challenge and a history of offending.

Old Leigh House is a large semi-detached house, overlooking a park. The service has a choice of lounges and communal areas for residents to choose from and a small garden at the back of the house. The house has been specially adapted and has an accessibility lift for those individuals who come to us with mobility needs.

Residents can enjoy a wide range of activities at the seaside towns nearby, with many coastal walks to enjoy, as well as some lovely beaches. They can also visit the shops or take part in local activities, such as bowling, going to the theatre, visiting the zoo, go karting or going to the cinema. The service also benefits from being within easy access to two main train lines into London.

Old Leigh House has a dedicated occupational therapist and activity coordinator who support residents to have individual activity plans, created based on each person’s likes and hobbies. Their goal is to enable residents to structure their time, build relationships and establish a balance between therapy, self care, work and leisure, as appropriate to their individual needs.

Individuals come to Old Leigh House for different reasons; they may require more support than can be provided in a supported living setting or they may be moving along their care pathway from a hospital placement. Whatever the reason, the team at Old Leigh House can offer specialist input based on individual need to deliver flexible and effective support.
