The communal facilities include a pleasant lounge, which opens out onto a grassed area, a fully equipped launderette, double bed guest room and an attractive garden. Residents at the court take part in many social events including bingo, coffee mornings, supper evenings and games nights.

Our Court Manager Service is an important and integral part of Housing & Care 21’s approach to supporting our residents. It is designed to offer support and security to the court and those residents on court who need it. The service is about promoting and encouraging individuals to maintain their independence in their own home.

Our Managers are also responsible for the day to day running of the court including looking after the Health & Safety, property management and resident engagement." Show less
