Using a person-centred approach, trained staff provide emotional and practical support and encouragement to help you do the things that are important to you.
We know it is important that you:

This means our support service is designed for you…they fit you and what you need; you do not have to fit the service. (Please remember that we do have to think about everyone else that lives in the home with you and their needs so compromises will have to be made sometimes)

At present, St Luke's supports six men who have varying degrees of learning disability.

It has been shown in many formal studies that exposure to green spaces, plants, trees and the countryside has a beneficial effect on mental health. People in general use gardening/horticulture to relax or to stimulate their minds; this is the same for the tenants we support.
