An overview of our home

The Bridge_Wakefield Road is situated on Wakefield Road, Garforth, a five minute walk from Garforth and it’s various amenities. Each individual apartment is spacious and comfortable, with flexible individual accommodation to allow people to live successfully in the local community.

There are six apartments, offering individual, self-contained living for six people in total. Each home has its own front door with larger than average floorspace for one person to live in. This includes a minimum of one bedroom, a lounge, separate kitchen and a bathroom offering a combination of bath, wet room or both. Four of the six apartments have an additional second bedroom for flexible use also.

Additional bedrooms can be adapted to form multi-sensory spaces, or tailored for day time activities that aid practical skills development and compliment community based resources.

As part of our environmental assessment, each home can be adapted to meet an individual’s requirements. This allows each person to live in a safe and considered environment that meets their personal circumstances and preferences.

There is an enclosed garden to the rear of the property. There is also ample parking, as well as separate office and staff areas, and shared meeting spaces for the people we support and our team.

We have a wealth of experience in supporting individuals with uniquely complex and challenging support needs that require a fresh approach. The management team are all CITRUS trainers.
