Show more "Kyrle Pope court is situated in Hampton Park, a very pleasant, quiet residential area on the edge of Hereford, surrounded by open countryside, and close to the River Wye and the Wye Valley Walk. On-site facilities include a newly renovated communal lounge, laundry room and guest room. The Court is 2 miles from Hereford centre and there is a bus stop directly outside the court which runs every 30 minutes into Hereford during the day. The court is opposite a GP surgery and chemist.

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
