Allendale Court - Residential Care

Allendale Court opened in October 2018 as a purpose-built advanced assisted  living scheme. It’s indented purpose is to provide a safe and nurturing environment for young adults with autism and learning disabilities. Usually residents come to Allendale from a residential care setting after receiving a two-year license mainly to learn life skills. However, we also support them to build self-confidence and aspirations. Following successful completion of the two-year license, each individual is re-assessed. Mostly at this point they may move into the community with their own tenancy.

In addition, we offer all our staff high quality training to be the best they can be. We ensure they are providing high quality support to the person they are assisting.
